Hospice Care is a medical approach provided when life expectancy is less than one year, and is intended to improve the comfort level of those in their final stages of life and help their families cope with end-of-life issues.

Palliative care relieves the discomfort of symptoms resulting from chronic diseases or other health conditions. While palliative measures do not resolve sickness, they do safeguard your love one’s comfort and well-being.

At Optimum Personal Care, residents are welcome to remain a part of our community while receiving hospice services, which are provided through our partner agencies. Our hospice partners are locally owned and operated by caring healthcare professionals dedicated to ensuring the utmost comfort to residents and their families. Hospice services and Palliative care are still apart of the continuum of care and all-inclusive pricing. Your loved one is well cared for without the additional hardship of increasing your budget.

Care decisions are made locally and immediately, which means they aren’t required to consult with a corporate office in another city or state. Their goal is to ensure hospice patients are comfortable, and provide a comprehensive level of compassionate care.  

The focus of hospice is not on treatment, but on pain and symptom management, comfort measures, acknowledgment, supporting the family, and providing the best quality of life for the time remaining. Palliative care is also centered on the ongoing relief of symptoms as your loved one’s condition evolves. Such measures maintain a higher quality of life and increased well-being.

Hospice functions under the philosophy that although some terminally ill patients may no longer receive medical treatment, they still deserve to be cared for with dignity and respect. Through the combined efforts of our tenured and caring staff and our hospice providers, our goal is to continue to provide compassionate, comprehensive care while meeting the physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs of the resident and their family that are unique to this phase of life.

Some of the services provided by Hospice include:

  • Medication and pain management
  • Bereavement services
  • Medical equipment and supplies
  • Spiritual advisor
  • Licensed medical social workers
  • Physician services
