Hospice is medical care with an emphasis on pain management and symptom relief for patients with life-limiting illnesses, as well as emotional and spiritual support for patients and those who love and care for them. Choosing hospice does not mean that you or your loved one is giving up on life. Our experienced team understands the complexity of issues and feelings that surround hospice care and end of life. Our care process is designed to maximize our patient’s quality of life. Our caregivers can provide 24-7 on-call support, clinical and skilled care, as well as spiritual and emotional counseling. We believe that through effective and compassionate care our patients can approach the end of life with dignity and comfort.

Care Services

Symptom Management

Eden Hospice understands that the experience of someone diagnosed with end stage cardiac disease is very different than that of someone with cancer or pulmonary disease. That’s why we offer symptom management to control symptoms and promote comfort. No matter what the disease or diagnosis, we believe in improving the quality of life when quantity is limited.

Our medical directors focus on symptom management and will work with your primary doctors to order appropriate medications. Our philosophy embraces the idea of relieving your pain and other symptoms so that you are in control of your own comfort. Our goal is to make a patient as comfortable as possible.

Supplies & Equipment

Hospice home care medical equipment can drastically improve the quality of life of those with life-limiting illnesses. Eden Hospice will manage the ordering and delivery process of the necessary equipment.

Medical equipment can:

  • Improve Mobility
  • Make breathing easier
  • Improve quality of sleep and help reduce pain

Eden Hospice will provide you with the supplies and medical equipment related to the hospice diagnosis, including:

  • Respiratory equipment including oxygen and CPAP, BIPAP and nebulizers
  • Walkers
  • Crutches
  • Wheelchairs
  • Bathroom and shower aids
  • Hospital beds

Respite Care

Respite care is provided to you when your family/caregivers need time away. Patients are placed in a contracted facility for a length of time in accordance with plan benefits (typically up to 5 days). The contracted facility will provide care with the hospice interdisciplinary members to continue making visits and maintain emergency/crisis availability.

Respite care for your caregiver may help prevent:

  • Burn-out
  • Depression
  • Stress, Illness, and Reduced Immunity due to Lack of Sleep

Bereavement Services

Bereavement care is an essential component of hospice care that includes anticipating grief reactions and providing ongoing support for the bereaved for a year or more after your loved one has passed.

Grieving and mourning are normal. You may experience grief as a mental, physical, social, or emotional reaction. Mental reactions can include anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness, and despair. Physical reactions can include sleeping problems, changes in appetite, physical problems, or illness. At Eden Hospice, we are committed to providing information, counseling, and resources for any reaction you may experience.

Each of us takes their own journey through grief and healing. Allow yourself to open up to the idea that not every person experiences and deals with the loss of a loved one in the same way. As there are many cultural and or religious practices supported in communities to help those facing loss, understand that there is no “one way” or “one plan” that can work for everybody.

Hospice bereavement programs focus on:

  • Helping family members understand and move forward in the grief process by enabling their expression of thoughts and feelings and helping them identify or develop healthy coping strategies.
  • Helping families problem-solve around adjustment issues.
  • Providing guidance about decision-making.
  • Addressing social and spiritual concerns.
  • Assisting survivors to adapt to an environment without the deceased.

Support Groups

At Eden Hospice, we are committed to providing information, counseling, and resources. Our Support Groups can help manage the everyday care and emotional challenges of caring for a dying loved one. Our team of professionals and volunteers address the emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients and those who love and care for them.
