How Aleca Offers Compassionate Hospice Care in Arizona

When your loved one reaches a particular stage in their illness, it may be time to start thinking about hospice care. Hospice care can provide patients and family members with the support and care they need when medical treatment is no longer an option or desired. As you seek hospice care in Arizona, we’re going to look at the compassionate care Aleca provides in its hospice services as you make this critical decision.

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is typically provided for patients with a terminal illness who may have six months or less to live as their condition declines without medical intervention [1]. Many people who seek hospice care have a chronic illness that is too serious or refuse to have specific treatments, such as chemotherapy for cancer patients.

Whatever the situation, it’s essential to recognize that hospice care is a service provided and not a place where people go to receive care. People can receive hospice care wherever they call home, whether it’s a private residence, nursing home, or long-term care facility.

While patients won’t receive medicine or treatment for their illness, they will receive medication to maintain a certain quality of life. This can include medicine for pain and anxiety [1].

Patients need to discuss hospice care options to determine if it is the right choice and, if it is, if it is the right time. Some people wait too long to begin hospice care, while others may not yet be eligible to receive that type of care. A physician can best help you and your family decide when to begin hospice care.

What to Expect from Hospice Care from Aleca

When you choose hospice care from Aleca for your loved one, you can expect access to a care team that is committed to helping preserve the best quality of life possible. The hospice team consists of:

  • Attending physician to provide medical management
  • Registered nurse care manager who will provide direct patient care and coordinate with physicians
  • Director of clinical services to coordinate care between the patient and care team
  • Certified nurse practitioners who will provide pain management or palliative care
  • Medical director to give insight on hospice care
  • Social workers to provide direct support and counseling
  • Home health aides to help with personal care
  • Volunteers to provide emotional support and companionship

These people work as a team that the patient’s primary care physician supervises. They provide health care, emotional support, and any spiritual guidance that may be necessary. You can expect all of our staff to offer the care and compassion that families need while under hospice care in Arizona.
