Hospice Care

Red Oak Hospice

Who can benefit from hospice care?

Any person diagnosed by a physician with a life-limiting medical condition can benefit from our hospice care and support.

At Red Oak Hospice, patients and families benefit from services provided by the traditional medical team of physician and nurses as well as practical assistance from social workers, spiritual and bereavement counselors, and specially trained community volunteers.

Hospice care is highly personalized care for an individual faced with a life-limiting medical condition. Hospice focuses on providing comfort, rather than cure, with particular emphasis on alleviating pain, controlling disease symptoms, and enabling the individual to live with dignity, as fully and independently as possible.

Care is provided by a well-trained team of professionals who care for the "whole patient" – the patient’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being – and offer assistance and support to his or her family.

Hospice care can be provided in many different places including in your own private home, assisted living facility or skilled nursing facility.

Hospice care and services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance

Comfort

Our goal for each of our patients is to provide specialized individual symptom management to achieve optimal comfort no matter which setting they reside in. We encourage our patients and families to make independent choices regarding their care with continuous support and education from our Hospice Team.

Compassion

Through our compassionate and dedicated team of trained professionals, Red Oak Hospice focuses on respecting each person’s freedom of choice regarding care and support. We safeguard personal privacy and assist them to remain in control while being as pain and symptom free as possible. We strive to create a positive and peaceful environment that enhances each person’s social, cultural and spiritual well-being. Our goal is to allay any fears or concerns our patients may have, while extending that same care and support to their spouse, family members or any caregiver.
