The goal of hospice care is to ensure every person is cared for as they near the end of life. At the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Hanover & Spring Grove, our nurses work with patients, as well as their families and physicians, to provide comfort and support while honoring every patient’s wishes. When you choose the hospice care center at the VNA, you’re choosing a team of caring professionals who are dedicated to providing support to meet the individual needs of our patients. Learn more about the benefits of seeking hospice care with the VNA.
Instead of attempting to cure the patient of an illness or disease they may have, the hospice care nurses at the VNA will work to treat and manage the pain and other symptoms caused by the illness. By focusing on how the patient feels rather than the terminal illness itself, we are able to care for the patient so they feel completely comfortable and experience the best quality of life. We work closely with the patient’s primary physician to ensure that we are doing everything we can to make the patient comfortable.
Because we strive to make all of our patients feel comfortable, we don’t want to remove the patient from the living arrangement where they are most at peace. Our caring staff accommodates for different living situations by visiting and treating patients who reside in nursing homes and those who live at home. This way, the patient is living where they choose to live while also receiving the end of life services that can prepare them for the next step. Our trained volunteers and nurses at the VNA also provide relief for primary caregivers through our respite care services.
When you’re surrounded by the people who care most about you, you have the freedom to speak your mind about different choices that will have to be made. We work with the families of patients to honor those important decisions and also offer ongoing support with our counseling services.
