With this approach to care, the patient, caregivers and family all benefit from information on illness progression and eventual end of life, and are able to face these last stages more comfortably and confidently. Since the primary daily care is provided by family members and loved ones, we provide training, counseling and hands-on care as appropriate.
We emphasize palliative, rather than curative, care which is relief from pain and uncomfortable symptoms. Hospice promotes quality rather than quantity of life. We provide emotional, non-denominational spiritual and practical support based upon the wishes and needs of the patient, caregivers and family. We recognize that every person’s experience will be different. The Interdisciplinary Team, in association with the patient’s primary physician, create a Plan of Care customized for the individual needs and wishes of the patient.
Crossroads Hospice is available at all times, so the compassionate care for our patients never takes a break.
We believe it is important to ensure our patients a good night of sleep knowing that they have a 24/7 responsive staff ready to help at any moment.
