About Hospice Care

The services provided by our Hospice programs are palliative and not curative.  The program emphasizes the management of pain and physical symptoms as well as meeting the emotional, social and spiritual needs faced during terminal illness.The services of FHP Home Health and Hospice are delivered in the home by a team of Hospice professionals.  These services include nursing, social work services, home health aides, therapy services and bereavement counseling. The hospice team is not intended to take the place of family, but rather to support the family in caring for the patient and in mobilizing available resources.  In order to qualify for Hospice services, a patient must have a terminal diagnosis and must not be seeking curative health care.  Your hospice 


Care team will make a visit to the home to meet with the patient and family to explain the program and answer any questions.  This will be scheduled weeks before the patient is ready to transition into hospice care.

 




Bereavement Program

The period right after the death of a loved one is a time of regrouping and sometimes relief.  One should not feel guilty about the sense of relief.  More active grieving and sadness may occur later.  The members of our FHP Hospice team will be available to help you through this difficult time.Hospice is available to help family members and significant others to continue to live theireveryday lives after the patient’s death.  Members of our FHP Hospice Team will continue to support you by telephone and mail.  Several support groups are made available to the family through our Hospice.
