Quality Care That Gives You Comfort and Peace of Mind

What to Expect in Hospice Care: A Comprehensive Guide for Families

Open communication during hospice care

Our interdisciplinary team maintains open and consistent communication with you and your family throughout the duration of your care. We are available to answer questions or address concerns anytime during 24 hours and 7 days. You can also count on regularly scheduled visits from various team members.

Spiritual and emotional support

Our counselors and chaplains offer advice, prayer, and comfort during this difficult time for both you and your family. You’ll never be at a loss for someone to talk to. We also offer bereavement services for you and anyone affected.

Hospice care team

This comprehensive team consists of certified nursing aides, therapists, chaplains, counselors, social workers, and trained volunteers led by a doctor and registered nurses who have received specialized training in end-of-life care. They are here to support you and other family members who also make up an integral part of the team.

Pain management and comfort

Guided by your plan of care and preferences, we aim for keeping you as comfortable as possible by managing pain and other symptoms. This mostly involves prescribed medication but can include other therapeutic approaches such as maintaining a calm environment.

Expert Care at Every Stage:

The Four Levels of Hospice Services

Routine Home Care

During this initial phase, the family receives regularly scheduled visits from home health aides, registered nurses, volunteers, chaplains/spiritual advisors, and therapists. The primary caregiver is often a relative who has received training from the hospice staff.

Respite Care

Respite can be provided to primary caregivers for up to 5 consecutive days. Your loved one is temporarily admitted to an inpatient facility to give you time to recharge.

Continuous Home Care

In this situation, your loved one receives short-term, 24-hour nursing care wherever he or she calls home. At this point, the patient’s symptoms have escalated to the where the primary caregiver needs assistance from aides and nurses.

General inpatient Care

General inpatient care requires the patient to be admitted to a hospice inpatient care unit or another local facility where he or she receives 24-hour symptom management and monitoring.

Michelle did a great job setting up Hospice services for my father in law. She expedited services when we needed them and continues to check on us. Thank you Michelle!

Abundant Hospice met our every need in a caring and timely manner. Michelle came as soon as I called to admit my loved one. She checked on me every day and after my mom passed. At this time, she cared for both of my parents. Ashton, Sylvia and Melissa gave me such comfort with their prompt and loving care. They were always available, and Ali was with me to direct service caretakers. I highly recommend this incredible company for the first rate we received. They are still caring for my other parent. And I am confident she is receiving the best care available.

Michelle has been a Godsend to our family. We’ve had several relatives we’ve needed her for and she’s professional, kind and efficient! Call Michelle if you’re in need of hospice. She will carry you through from beginning till the end with plenty of time in between!

This facility was a nice place for my mom to spend her final days. Everyone was so nice and attentive to whatever my mom needed and we appreciate their fine hospitality. We were able to stay there for as long as we wanted anytime and they always made us feel welcome. Even the transition from the hospital to the facility was smooth and very quick and easy. Communication was always there and we have absolutely no complaints about anything at all. We would recommend this facility to anyone we know. Thank you again for making this difficult time easier for us.

Michelle Balero has such tremendous compassion for all those that she engages with. She goes above and beyond to take care of the patient but also the family. It is such a difficult time in our lives but she makes the transition so much more bearable by her supportive care❤️

Our girls are 19 and 23 years old and their amazing father Sean has fought a good fight but is ready to transition and stop his pain. I will start with my history as a hopsice case manager and as a hospice team director because I am very aware of the services hospice offers and I would like to say Michelle Balero thus far has gone above and beyond. She worked all day yesterday to get my girls father in Abundants IPU. She didn't stop until she got it done! She has kept in contact with us, responded to any questions, and went out of the way to make this experience better for my daughters. I am very sure I will be leaving more reviews and we are so happy to know Sean will leave this world with dignity and love from all!
