Intro to Hospice Care

< Back to Hospice Facts and FAQs

Pathways offers the support and encouragement that patients and families desire during the final months of life. A team of nurses, home health aides, physicians, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers provide hospice care inside an interdisciplinary approach.

Caring for patients and their caregivers, these individuals make home visits as needed, provide respite for caregivers and coordinate community services by listening and responding to the needs of the patient and their caregivers.

The patient’s primary physician continues to oversee the daily care whether the patient is at home, the home of a loved one, or in a skilled or assisted living facility. Pathways provides medical equipment such as a hospital bed, oxygen, if required, along with medical supplies and prescribed medication as they relate to a patient’s advanced medical condition.
