Riverside Shore Hospice
Hospice care offers support and individualized services for patients with a life-limiting prognosis. Riverside Hospice believes that when time is of the essence, quality of life is essential. Our trained Hospice care providers can help reduce the distraction of managing pain or medications so you can focus on what's important: time together. In the comfort of home, you and your loved ones will receive physical, emotional, social and spiritual care during your journey.
The Riverside team that comes together for home hospice consists first and foremost of the patient's family, along with the hospice medical director, physicians and nurses, medical social workers, physical and occupational therapists, nutritional counselors, volunteers trained in hospice care and chaplains or other spiritual care coordinators.
The hospice team can also make arrangements for any medical equipment and medical supplies needed, based on the patient's diagnosis.
Family members, caregivers and significant others play a vital role in the Hospice process, and Riverside offers just as much care and support to these individuals as to the patient. Throughout the course of your loved one's illness, Hospice provides resources to help you manage your role as a caregiver and the physical and emotional effects it can take on your life. Hospice surrounds grieving families and loved ones with compassion and understanding. Ongoing grief and bereavement counseling services can help you through this difficult time.
