What does Pathways’ Hospice Care look like?

by in Services January 24, 2019

At Pathways, our mission is to honor life by being compassionate and caring to those with advanced medical conditions, as well as those who are grieving. This can look different for everybody, and so we offer a number of different services. We want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible. Let’s talk a little bit about what our services could mean to you.

 

In Your Home

Many people prefer to remain in their own home for as long as possible. If you live in your own home, our team can bring medical equipment to you. This way you can stay where you are most comfortable, and your loved ones can be nearby. Our on-call nursing care is available 24/7.

Assisted Living Care & Long Term Care

Are you already in an assisted living facility? That’s great! We can also help care for you there. We have a team of nurses, specially trained volunteers, counselors, and music and art therapists that will work with those already serving you. You can never have too many people supporting you, and the extra care can provide you even more comfort.

Inpatient Care

Pathways has an inpatient care center at McKee Medical Center. It offers short term stays, which many choose because of the option to have family nearby and medical attention available. Loved ones are welcome to visit 24 hours a day with consent. At the same time, you will be near medical care with access to social workers, chaplains, music therapists, and volunteers. This dedicated team is there every single day to help relieve any pain from difficult symptoms.

Specialized Veteran Care

Larimer and Weld Counties together are home to approximately 38,000 military veterans.  Pathways is happy to provide compassionate care for these veterans, as well as provide specialized support for their family members.  We tailor our hospice, palliative, and support services to meet our veterans’ specific needs.

 

Pathways’ hospice services are available to anyone with a life expectancy prognosis of six months or less. The sooner you begin to use hospice care, the more support we can provide you. If you have any questions or would like to speak to one of our qualified team members, please call 970-663-3500 and we would be happy to help.
