At Angel Hands, we are very proud of the medically directed, team oriented care we provide to each of our patients. We work closely with the other professionals involved in your case to design the best plan of care and support possible for each patient and their loved one. Teams will vary depending on your specific needs, but typically include:
Physicians, Nurses, Qualified Hospice Aides, Social Workers, Chaplains and Spiritual Counselors, Bereavement Coordinators and Volunteers
Angel Hands also provides diagnosis related medications, medical equipment and supplies necessary to promote the highest degree of comfort at home or in other hospice settings.
The majority of hospice care is provided in the patient's home, with family and friends acting as caregivers. If there is no residence, the agency can provide care in nursing homes or other types of residential facilities. If a patient requires inpatient care in order to address severe symptoms or to provide respite for a caregiver, we have relationships with hospitals and nursing home facilities throughout our service area, allowing patients to be served in their own communities.
Not all problems occur between the hours of 8 and 5. We have a triage team available 24/7. When you call in the evenings or on weekends, we will always be available, even if the need is not medical in nature. If an evening or weekend visit is needed, you can count on us to be there for you.
As the saying goes, it's not just about where you're going, but also how you get there. We understand how difficult and emotional it can be making the decision to begin hospice care for your loved one. So when it comes to something this important, you need someone you can trust to make their journey as comfortable and dignified as possible.
At Angel Hands, we take that responsibility very personally and we spare no effort to care for your loved one as if they were our own family. We are with you every step of the way.
