BENEFITS OF HOME HEALTH CARE

  • It keeps the family together by allowing the patient to receive necessary care at home.
  • It provides continuity of care from the hospital or nursing facility to the patient’s home.
  • It can reduce the time a patient must spend in a hospital or other health care facility.
  • It promotes independence by providing the patient and their family with health related education, guidance and support.

HOSPICE

Hospice is an approach to care which helps people with life limiting illnesses maintain quality and dignity in their lives.  Hospice staff members and volunteers understand the great stress placed on patients and their families and friends during this difficult period. These individuals combine skill and compassion to support patients and families so they may find comfort and strength. Hospice care is directed by the patient’s needs and wishes.
While the goal of Hospice is to provide care for the patient at home, whether that be a private residence or a long-term care facility, there may be times when a brief hospitalization for symptom control may be necessary. For these times, private rooms will be available at Dearborn County Hospital with visiting hours tailored to meet the patient’s medical and emotional needs.

Hospice services are provided as a team effort on an intermittent basis by nurses; personal caregivers; social workers; members of the clergy; speech, physical and occupational therapists; and specially trained community volunteers. Their responsibilities are coordinated by the program director based on the direction provided from the patient’s physician.
