Specifically designed for those in the last stages of a terminal illness, hospice family care is a philosophy that recognizes a patient’s final stage of life. It also seeks to help individuals remain alert and pain-free and helps to manage any other symptoms they may have. At VNA of Hanover and Spring Grove, we involve both the patient and the family in the decision-making process, and we focus on keeping the patient comfortable.

Plans For Hospice Family Care
The VNA offers a team approach to end-of-life care, whether the individual is in a nursing home or another facility, living alone or in a private residence surrounded by family and friends. Working in conjunction with a patient’s caregivers and doctors, we provide an array of support services to ensure the physical and emotional well-being of all our patients. Our services evaluate and help manage any pain or symptoms of the disease, and we address physical, social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs to positively affect the quality of life for every patient.
Our hospice care team includes social workers, bereavement coordinators and spiritual counselors for both the individual requiring care and close family members. Our specially trained staff members also work with all types of terminal illnesses and can explain our hospice program and how it touches all of those affected by illness, grief and loss.
If you or a family member require hospice family care, we can provide a variety of services to ensure quality end-of-life treatment.
