Hospice Care: Pomeroy Living’s Philosophy

Hospice care is a form of medical care that provides support and comfort to individuals and their families with life-limiting illnesses. The focus of hospice care is not on curing the illness but rather on enhancing quality of life and reducing suffering. At Pomeroy Living, we believe that hospice care should be compassionate, empathetic, and centered around the needs of the individual and their loved ones.

Our Hospice Care Philosophy

At Pomeroy Living, we understand that the journey through a serious illness can be a difficult and emotional one. That is why our hospice care philosophy is based on providing personalized, compassionate support to every resident and their loved ones. Our team of healthcare professionals, including nurses, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers, work together to provide the highest quality of care and support possible.

Individual Autonomy

One of the core principles of our philosophy is the belief in resident autonomy. We believe that each resident has the right to make decisions about their own care and treatment, and we respect their choices and decisions. Our team works closely with each resident and their loved ones to develop a care plan that is tailored to their individual needs and preferences. This care plan may include physical, emotional, and spiritual support, as well as pain and symptom management.

Support Families & Loved Ones

Another important aspect of our philosophy is the emphasis on providing support to the resident’s family and loved ones. We understand that a serious illness affects not just the resident, but also their entire support system. Our team works to provide emotional and practical support to family members, helping them navigate this difficult time and providing resources for coping and healing.

Providing Comfort with Hospice Care

At Pomeroy Living, we also believe in the importance of providing care in a comfortable and familiar environment. We understand that being in familiar surroundings can help reduce anxiety and provide a sense of comfort and security. That is why we offer hospice care in the individual’s own home or in one of our comfortable and welcoming facilities. Our goal is to provide a warm and supportive place where patients and their loved ones can feel at peace while receiving the care and support they need.
