Hospice Service

The patient receives greater monitoring than he or she would in a hospital. In addition to focusing on the physical health and comfort of a patient, hospice care also focuses on the emotional needs and spiritual well-being of the terminally ill and their loved ones.

Hospice is the term for a special program of care for terminally ill (dying) patients and their families. Rather than trying to cure an illness, hospice efforts aim to make the patient comfortable, ease pain and other troublesome symptoms and support the family through a sad and difficult time.


Medical Social Services

  • Assessing social and emotional factors
  • Advanced care planning
  • Community resource planning

  • Crisis intervention
  • Counseling
  • Teaching regarding coping with loss and change

Speech Therapy

The main goal of speech therapy is to help a patient regain communication skills. So, they can easily interact with the environment and express their needs and desires. The therapy also focuses on regaining the ability to eat and swallow without the help of the other people. The advantage of the speech therapy is it can be performed at their home and every therapy is designed according to the patient’s needs. This is especially important for people suffering from dementia or cognitive impairment.

Home Care Aide or Homemaker Services

It assists patients with completing everyday personal tasks such as dressing, bathing, and a variety of hygiene needs.
