Grand View Hospital

1981 - Grand View starts Hospice Program

Hospice, 1981Recognizing the need for a special kind of care, Grand View Hospital began its Hospice Program in 1981 to care for the terminally ill.

The program offers healthcare professionals who provide advance palliative care to help the dying patients live as fully and as comfortably as possible.

By focusing on quality of life, Hospice uses a holistic approach that seeks to meet the physical, social, spiritual and emotional needs of the patients, their families and support persons.

Through a program of personalized services, support and instruction, patients and their families are able to spend their last days together in the familiar surroundings of their own home.

Today, the Hospice Program uses an interdisciplinary team approach to care that coordinates patient and family services, like in-home skilled nursing visits with support as needed from physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapists, dieticians, and social workers; emergency on-call services, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day; volunteers offering support and companionship; chaplain services; and a bereavement counseling program supporting family members following the loss of a loved one.
