When your focus shifts from seeking a cure to seeking greater quality of life, our hospice services will provide compassionate care to you and your loved ones – helping you make the most of every moment.
For the patient, our primary objectives are to ensure your comfort and dignity while empowering you with choice. As an Open Access hospice provider, Covenant offers an exceptional approach to end-of-life care, allowing you to receive the benefits of hospice services while continuing to receive many treatments and medications that are not typically offered by other hospice providers.
From the moment you choose Covenant Care, you become part of our family, so it’s only natural that our promise of caring extends beyond the patient to include your loved ones too. Our collaborative team will help manage pain and improve quality of life for the patient, while addressing the needs of the entire family through education and support.
Let Our Family Care for Yours
Physical, social, emotional and spiritual care is provided collaboratively by a physician-directed interdisciplinary group (IDG).
Our nurses are specially trained in pain management techniques to help alleviate suffering associated with a life-limiting illness. Nurses make regularly scheduled visits to provide skilled patient care and education. Under the direction of our nurses, certified nursing assistants and aides provide personal care services for patients.
Social workers offer physical, emotional and social support to patients and loved ones. They can navigate through insurance concerns and identify tools for financial assistance when needed. Social workers also assist families with advanced directives and funeral arrangements.
The entire team is guided by the patient’s individualized plan of care, which is developed and directed by our physicians, who each have advanced training in pain management. These doctors serve as an extension – never a substitute – of the patient’s referring physician. Our doctors consult regularly with the rest of the patient’s care team and make home visits to patients when needed.
The care team consists of:
- Medical doctors
- Registered nurses
- Personal care aides
- Social workers
- Spiritual care coordinators
- Bereavement specialists
