Hospice Care

       *Exclusively for Healthnetwork GOLD Supporters*

The Concierge + Program offers GOLD Supporters and their families access to world class hospice and palliative care through a partnership with Hospice of the Western Reserve.  For more specifics on the program CLICK HERE.

Hospice care provides patients whose life expectancy is measured in months, weeks or days, rather than years, with the unique experience to celebrate life, to be comfortable and to enjoy the time they have, however limited. We allow our patients to be in control of their care and live out their lives in dignity.

Hospice of the Western Reserve has a team of caregivers that wraps around the patient and the family. Team members include hospice physician, nurse, nursing assistants, social workers, spiritual care, pharmacist, bereavement counselors and volunteers. The hospice team works with the patient’s physician to provide the best care possible. Care plans are built upon the patients' needs and input from the family and carefully monitored and reviewed over time. Grief and loss counselors work with families before and for at least 13 months after the death of their loved one to help them move through the grief process.
