Why Choose Aleca Hospice
Terminal and life-limiting conditions not only affect patients but also their families and friends. Hospice services from Aleca Hospice first and foremost provide patients with comfort and solace when they need it most. Through our holistic approach to hospice care, we also work with families and loved ones to give patients the means with which to live out their lives in a dignified manner in the comfort of their homes.
It all starts with our physician-led team of healthcare professionals. Aleca’s team of skilled nurses, counselors, volunteers, and bereavement coordinators simultaneously provides health-related and emotional support to both patients and their families. Our hospice approach not only addresses a patient’s medical condition, but it also recognizes the importance of family in one’s end-of-life journey. Rather than facing this journey alone, Aleca Hospice Care works in tandem with the existing support system of patient families. By evaluating and addressing the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of a patient’s situation, we execute a coordinated effort to create an environment of comfort and care.
Under Aleca Hospice Care, a patient’s primary physician will supervise their care. All orders and prescriptions will be followed and implemented by our staff of skilled nurses, social workers, bereavement coordinators, and home health aides. These professionals are assisted by additional volunteers who may provide emotional support to family members or temporary respite care.
Additionally, as a patient’s condition progresses, their assistive technology and medical equipment needs may change. With Aleca Hospice Care, we provide access to all of the necessary medical supplies needed to ensure the highest quality of healthcare for your patient.
At Aleca, we recognize that our loved ones all have different needs. That is why our physician-led approach meets both medical needs and the emotional needs of a family. Compassionate, flexible, and highly skilled, our hospice team can make each end-of-life journey an empowering experience.
