Hanover & Spring Grove In-Home Hospice Care
When the time comes to consider hospice care for yourself or a loved one, you can trust in the Visiting Nurses Association of Hanover & Spring Grove to partner with your family in providing the highest quality in-home care during this difficult end-of-life period. Our highly qualified team of nurses and health care professionals offers care not only for patients with terminal illnesses but important support for their circle of loved ones and caregivers. We also help verify and begin coverage through insurance plans or help you find other assistance.
How In-Home Hospice Care Makes a Difference
Not only does a patient’s end-of-life period provide additional physical and emotional difficulties for patients, but it also becomes an incredibly emotionally trying time for families. That’s when in-home hospice can step in to make a true difference. When your health care team tells you it’s time, the VNA of Hanover & Spring Grove is ready to help you with many different areas of care, including:
Managing patient comfort. Pain management is a key component in end-of-life care, and our staff will work with the patient and their health care team to ensure that a high level of comfort is achieved and maintained.
Enabling patient choice. Patients have many different choices when it comes to end-of-life care, including whether to continue treatments and therapies, how final visits and plans are facilitated and even the scheduling of daily needs. Our staff works to honor each patient’s wishes, family values and cultural beliefs.
Embracing patients and families with high-level support. Terminal illnesses are not just difficult physically but also spiritually and emotionally. Our staff includes spiritual counselors, social workers and highly trained companionship and respite volunteers to envelop the patient and their loved ones with the highest level of support.
VNA 12th Annual Hospice Wings of Hope Butterfly Release
The VNA's Annual Butterfly Release provides much needed support to patients and families in our area. This event is typically held the first Sunday of June, however, given the pandemic and our concern for the safety of our patients and families, this event will be held on Saturday, September 12th.
Butterflies will be available for purchase as usual but we will not have a service as in past years. Instead, we will distribute the purchased butterflies at our office on 440 N. Madison Street from 9:00 am to 11:30 am.
Each family will receive a butterfly release program which will contain the names of loved ones and readings to use at your home. Additionally, the VNA will be posting a butterfly release video on our Facebook page by September 18th.
