Hospice care at Touchstone Health provides a comfortable, supportive level of care for patients and their families centered on compassion and respect during what we know is one of the most challenging times in life.
Our program includes pain and symptom management, respect for the patient’s and family’s wishes, dignity, support, peace, and respect for the fullness of life throughout the process, as well as both physical and emotional support for the family and friends. It’s an extremely difficult process for anyone, and Touchstone Health’s network of care can help make it as pain-free as possible.
For people with a life-limiting illness of six months or less and who desire no further curative measures, such as chemo or radiation therapy, Touchstone Health’s hospice care can help you and your family or loved ones through the referral process. We often describe ourselves as a “hospital without walls” because we employ a broad network of healthcare services from the beginning to the end of the journey. Our intimate knowledge of where you’ve been and where you want to go helps us provide the care you need right now. Simply, we know your journey and can walk it with you.
Whether in your home, a nursing facility or a hospital, depending on the circumstances of each individual patient, our hospice team includes your personal physician, the hospice medical director, nurse, home health aides, social workers, chaplain/counselors and compassionate, trained volunteers who work together to provide the specific needs of each individual patient.
