Hospice Care and Assisted Living Facilities Can Work Together
Hospice is a philosophy of care that provides physical, emotional and spiritual support. Hospice takes a team approach that incorporates not only health care professionals, but also the patient and their loved ones. Hospice focuses on improving the quality of living, improving comfort and providing an extra layer of support.
When working together with an assisted living facility, hospice can provide one-on-one care and assistance that can compliment the services that are offered the facility.
Watch Mary Beth Crawford with Heartland Hospice and Erica Ramsey with Rutherford House discuss how hospice and assisted living can work together.
