Seasons Hospice at Home
In-home hospice and palliative care is made possible by a team of nurses and physicians working with you to determine what services are needed and how often the hospice team members will visit. Visits are made as often as you need them.
Palliative care Springfield is focused medical care for people with severe illness. This type of care is dedicated on providing reprieve from the symptoms and stress of a severe illness. The objective of palliative care is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
- offers relief from pain and other difficult symptoms;
- encourages life and respects dying as a normal process;
- plans to neither hasten or postpone death;
- and incorporates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care.
What happens if we need help between visits from our hospice team members?
A team of Physicians, Nurses, Social Workers, Counselors, Certified Nursing Assistants, Clergy, Therapists, and Volunteers care for hospice patients – and each provides assistance based on his/her area of expertise. In addition, hospices help provide medications, supplies, equipment, hospital services (when related to the terminal illness), and additional helpers in the home when needed.
