The philosophy of Sacred Life Hospice is to provide the terminally ill patient and their family supportive and loving care, in tranquil surroundings, and the wherewithal to live fully comfortably, for as long as possible. The patient is then permitted to die naturally and with dignity when the time comes.
Hospice care seeks to alleviate emotional and spiritual pain, and to control the accompanying symptoms. While it may be futile to pursue aggressive treatments or surgery, Sacred Life Hospice can provide attention, friendship, care and love. With appropriate intervention, and the utilization of the multitude of resources that are available for palliation and pain control, the last months, weeks and days of an individuals life can have quality, and provide loved ones with lasting memories, of special moments.
We respect the patients right to be furnished with complete and current information regarding his or her medical condition. This includes but is not limited to the prognosis and planned course of palliative treatment as well as any significant risks that may be involved. Each and every patient shall have the right to refuse any and all treatments.
The patient and his/her family can be assured that the physician or the Hospice Director, Social Worker, Pastoral Counselor and Nurse are available to discuss any matter of concern to the patient or family.
Sacred Life Hospice exists to provide support and care to persons and their families who are in the final phase of their lives. Our goal is to enable them to preserve their human dignity and enrich the quality of their life. Support for the family and/or friends continue, after the death of the patient, for as long as necessary.
