You’ve Chosen Hospice. Take the Next Step by Electing Your Care Team

Choose Phoenix Home Care & Hospice for Experienced Compassionate Hospice Care

You may decide to choose hospice when your doctor has diagnosed you with a life-limiting illness, and you no longer wish to pursue treatment. You wish to avoid trips to the ER and hospital and want to be in your home, feeling as pain-free and comfortable as possible.

This is a powerful, brave decision. You have decided to begin a new journey that doesn’t include the challenges that treating this illness has presented. Hospice is just that – a journey – and, like all journeys, it requires support. Once you elect hospice, you’ll find there is an empathetic, skilled hospice team ready to serve: Phoenix Home Care & Health.

It is important to elect a hospice team that understands your wishes by providing and even exceeding the standard of care you deserve. Phoenix delivers comprehensive hospice care with expertise that comes from guiding patients and their loved ones through this phase of life.

When you choose Phoenix Home Care & Hospice, we dedicate ourselves fully to your comfort, medical care, and much more. Keep reading to learn why people select Phoenix for home hospice near you.

Phoenix Sets the Standard for Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Hospice Care

Pain management is a critical part of hospice care, and this form of treatment is what many people think of first when they elect hospice services. However, exceptional care extends beyond managing pain that often accompanies a life-limiting illness that will go untreated. Patients also receive emotional and spiritual care to fully experience comfort during this time.

Phoenix Home Care & Hospice provides benefits that address you as a whole person.

Depending on your condition and your physician’s orders, you may also receive additional services, like:

  • Occupational, physical, and speech therapy.
  • Dietary counseling.
  • Spiritual counseling, comfort, and guidance from a chaplain.
  • All medical equipment, supplies, and medication.
  • Social workers and volunteers for emotional comfort and guidance, along with important resources for your family.
  • Family bereavement care.

Keep in mind that hospice services are different for each patient, depending on their needs. Your nurse case manager is responsible for creating and directing an individual approach to your care. A nurse case manager is available 24/7 to ensure that you and your family have support at all times. Knowing that your healthcare needs are completely covered at all times provides a great deal of relief.

These services, and many more, are differentiators that make us a trusted provider of hospice care near you. Contact Phoenix today to learn more.

Our Hospice Services Also Include Respite Care

If a family member helps care for you, they may need support for the times in between care and treatment from your hospice team. Family caregivers take on an immense role during hospice care at home, which leaves little time for other responsibilities, including work, family, and self-care.

Phoenix’s hospice team offers respite care, so family caregivers can take time off to meet their responsibilities. Respite care can include routine care or continuous care services, depending on the caregiver’s respite needs. At Phoenix Home Care & Hospice, we provide respite care as part of the hospice benefit because we are committed to supporting the entire family when you choose hospice. Hospice should be a time when you are able to focus on receiving the care you need, while your family also receives necessary support. You shouldn’t have to worry about yourself or your family. When you choose Phoenix, an extra set of hands is always available to provide compassionate care.

Your Insurance Covers Hospice Care

Phoenix Home Care & Hospice will also help you navigate your insurance benefits. During this season of change, understanding insurance benefits is one more stressor that shouldn’t get in the way of embracing your next chapter of life.

Hospice care near you is 100% covered by Medicare and Medicaid. Your private insurance may include coverage for hospice. Phoenix will guide you through the process of receiving the hospice benefit and create a customized plan that is best for you.
