Dedicated Care Team Helps Reduce Symptoms
Hospice is a philosophy of care; one that is dedicated to keeping you comfortable. This can mean different things to different people, particularly when talking about pain and symptom management. The holistic care team at Hospice of the Northwest is committed to honoring your wishes and is equipped with a variety of options to reduce pain and manage symptoms related to the end-of-life journey.
Pain is a common symptom at the end of life and can be caused by physical and non-physical sources. We understand the importance of pain management and know that it requires a personalized approach. Your hospice care team has many options available – medical treatments and non-medication therapies – to help with pain and symptom management.
A personalized approach to pain and symptom management
Every member of your dedicated hospice care team will support your desired plan of care to the best of their ability. We empower you to be in the driver’s seat of your care. From massage therapists and clinical musicians to specially trained nurses and spiritual counselors, we strive you make your end-of-life experience as comfortable as possible. The goal is to help you live your best life with the amount of time you have left.
Caregiver resources and supports
If you are a caregiver, it can be difficult to watch your loved one experience pain. Your dedicated hospice care team is specially trained in end-of-life care and an expert hospice clinician can be reached 24/7 to answer questions or provide education.
Your hospice team will walk alongside you in this journey and support you while managing your loved one’s condition.
Caregiver support and education is an important part of the wrap-around service offered by Hospice of the Northwest. We also offer a Caregiver Toolbox with a variety of videos and resources to support caregivers.
“We’re not looking at treatment. We’re looking at comfort, quality of life, and dignity. We’re going to offer a holistic care team that treats the whole person.”
