A segment of our care team is specifically trained to meet the needs of individuals receiving care under palliative or hospice programs. They understand the importance of closely following care plans created by the physicians, RN’s and case managers in each program. These caregivers are trained to look for conditions that can compromise comfort such as skin breakdowns. Thorough documentation is required to provide important information to healthcare professionals. Caregivers are an important liaison between clients and their families and palliative/hospice personnel.
Depending on the condition of each client, caregivers can provide…
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
- Bathing, dressing and grooming care
- Oral care
- Bed care
- Transferring and repositioning
Our top priority is providing comfort and safety for the client and support and relief for the family.
