Our Hospice at Home program is an innovative, team-based approach to in-home hospice and palliative care.
Our Hospice at Home program gives your loved one the option of spending the end-stage of their life in their own home, with family and in familiar surroundings. A registered nurse (RN) oversees and guides the work of a specially trained personal support worker, called a health-care technician (HCT). HCTs act as the eyes, ears and hands of the RN. They send data and observations to the nurse on a regular basis. The nurse assesses that information and provides instruction or direction to the health-care technician at the bedside.
One nurse can supervise several HCTs, allowing us to care for more clients in their own homes.
