At Bel Vista Healthcare Center, we are proud to provide hospice care to those residents in need of this service. This allows the resident, who feels that this is their home, an opportunity to stay in a comfortable and familiar place while receiving services to meet their individual needs.
We contract with several of the top providers within the hospice industry, assisting in a specialized care plan, to aid in maintaining or improving the quality of life for someone whose illness, disease or condition is unlikely to be cured. Each resident will be evaluated so that the most appropriate individualized care plan can be provided.
The following services are offered through our Hospice Program:
- Time and services from a care team, including visits to the patient’s location by the hospice physician, nurse, social worker, home-health side and chaplain/spiritual adviser
- Medication for symptom control/pain relief
- Medical equipment as needed such as: wheelchairs, walkers and medical supplies
- Dietary counseling
- Grief and loss counseling
