TMC Hospice is a special program that cares for people with any terminal illness or injury after the patient, physician and family decide that aggressive curative treatment is no longer appropriate. Hospice care provides a sensitive support system that helps patients and their families cope with physical, spiritual and emotional concerns related to the terminal condition. Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process.
Using an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, 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.
At TMC Hospice, we consider life a sacred journey of transformation, personal growth and discovery. Our mission is to help those with life-limiting illnesses walk their path of life and receive compassion, dignity and love.
Our mission at TMC Hospice is to provide an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual and practical care for adults and children in the last phases of a life-limiting illness or injury, 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 the patient, family and caregiver. Hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family, caregiver lifestyle, values and wishes.
