All of Hospice Needs

Losing a loved one to a progressive, incurable disease is heartbreaking for friends, family, and the patient. Watching a person deteriorate from good health to the final stages of life can be more than many can bear.

At Universal Hospice, we make it our mission to provide hospice services in an effort to make the transition more peaceful to the patient while also giving them control of the process. Our staff is competent, compassionate and specially trained to assist family members and patients alike in order to be there to the end, offering peace and support to all who are involved during such a difficult time.

With hospice care, a person who is approaching the end of life can be cared for in the home or at the hospital by a team of our hospice staff members from Universal Hospice. We recognize how difficult it is to watch someone endure a terminal illness. It is also causes great strain on loved ones. Family members are often unable to devote themselves to full-time care for a hospice patient. Work and children may often be involved, other responsibilities needing to be addressed as well. The patient may also feel a great deal of stress as he or she worries about the well-being of the rest of the family. This is where hospice workers can help lighten the burden for everyone.

Hospice workers act as a team to assist the dying and the living. Our focus is to provide comfort in every way possible to our patients, and in so doing we are helping the family members as well. We will make sure our patients are comfortable and help them to manage their pain and symptoms. We are there to assist with bathing and other needs. Spiritual guidance can be offered and companionship. With Universal Hospice, family members can have peace of mind when they need to take a break, get badly needed rest, or have to take care of other obligations. Allowing patients to remain at home is often easier on everyone and we can make that happen.
