TMC Hospice Services provides and individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual and practical care for adults and children in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms.
The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible and in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient, family, and caregiver. Hospice personnel respects and responds to the unique differences in family, caregiver lifestyle, values and wishes.
Utilizing an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, homemakers, home health aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors and others, we provide palliative care in the home, short term inpatient/respite services, mobilization and coordination of ancillary services and bereavement support. Services will be equitably distributed to a medically and financially diversified group of patients in a cost effective manner which ensures adherence to the goals of TMC Hospice Services and the maintenance of the financial solvency of our organization.
Hospice affirms life.
Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.
Hospice exists in the belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community - patients, families, and caregivers will be free to attain a degree of mental preparation for death that is satisfying to them.
