The Hospice Circle of Care is a patient-centered model that emphasizes the continuum of services delivered by our professionals. Our caregivers work together as a team to ensure that they assess and meet the needs of our patients, families, and caregivers.
Hospice Circle of Care
Faith & Family Hospice physicians work in conjunction with the patient’s attending physician to meet the patients goals and allow for the continuation of the established patient-doctor relationship.
The hospice physician collaborates with the patient’s primary care physician to address specific care needs requiring specialized hospice training. Additionally, the patient may elect to have our hospice physician assume the role of his/her attending physician.
Our hospice team provides exceptional medical attention with ample resources to care for and support patients.
Our hospice nurses provide a seamless coordination of services from the team. The nurses manage the patient’s medical needs and are specially trained in complex symptom management. The nurses also work with the patient’s family, friends, and caregivers teaching them how to care for, nurture, and support the patient.
