Hospice helps a person find peace of mind, provides guidance on living with an illness and assists with caring for someone who is ill or frail. We also provide grief support and counseling services to help family members cope with a loss.
Is respite care available?
Yes. We offer short-term respite care to give you a break from the stress of caring for a loved one and we are there to help you deal with your feelings.
Is family support offered?
Mother's Touch offers grief support groups to help teach families how to deal with grief and mourning. We provide family members an opportunity to share their grief and speak with others who have experienced similar losses.
Will my cultural and religious preferences be respected?
Mother's Touch does not judge a patient or family by their cultural backgrounds or religious beliefs. We provide compassionate care, add to the patient’s quality of life and relieve the pain and suffering of the patient and family. At the same time we remain sensitive and respectful to cultural and religious beliefs and practices.
Can we keep our own doctor?
Patients may choose either to retain their attending physician or have their care taken over by the hospice's medical director.
Can I change my mind after starting services?
Hospice services can be stopped at any time without penalty and without impacting a recipient’s future eligibility.
Is there a time limit for services?
As long as an individual and family remain supportive of the hospice philosophy and the patient continues to show physical signs indicating a limited life-expectancy, the patient can continue to receive the full range of hospice services.
How and when can I call for information?
