The hospice program provides bereavement follow-up and supportive grief counseling to hospice families for a period of 13 months following a loved one’s death. Services include telephone calls, in-home visits, monthly support groups, etc.
At Memorial, hospice care is provided through an interdisciplinary, medically directed team consisting of compassionate and caring hospice nurses, home health aides, social workers, a spiritual advisor and hospice volunteers. Charitable contributions raised through Friends of Hospice provide support services not reimbursed by insurances that improve the quality of care that hospice provides.
