How Hospice Care Helps

At Pathways Hospice, it isn’t enough for us to provide outstanding care. Our compassionate team takes the time to get to know each patient and family individually. Our team develops unique connections with our families, and becomes a true part of their support system. Research has shown that patients on hospice care can live longer, more fulfilling lives compared to those who don’t receive hospice services.

At Pathways Hospice, we understand that your community provider relationships are important. Patients are always welcome to keep their PCP, and we will always provide the highest levels of communication to PCPs in an effort to work collaboratively for the best possible patient outcomes. In addition, our interdisciplinary team includes dedicated Medical Directors and Nurse Practitioners who can provide patients with in-home visits, and our entire team meets to assess our patient’s clinical needs on a weekly basis.
Our team consists of Hospice Certified Nurses, Aides, Social Workers, Chaplains, Volunteers, Nurse Practitioners and Physicians. The Pathways Team will evaluate every patient individually and create a unique care plan for each patient and family. Visits can range between a few hours per week, to daily visits based on what is specifically needed for each patient.
Pathways Hospice provides all of our patients with access to our team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to your Nurse Care Manager, who you will see multiple times each week, we also provide our patients and families with access to a 24/7 Nurse and Physician-lead Helpline. We will always have a nurse available to make visits any time of day or night, especially in emergent situations. We will work in adjunct with our patients and families to ensure that all goals of care are being met and exceeded.

You have the right to discontinue hospice services at anytime if you wish to pursue other treatment options. You may also be discharged from hospice if your condition improves or does not decline as expected, but you can be readmitted later if you still qualify.

The hospital cannot and will not refuse care to hospice patients. Patients and families always have the right to call 911 in an emergency, and take their loved ones to the hospital. At Pathways Healthcare, our goal is to avoid unnecessary rehospitalizations by providing the best possible in-home care to our patients and families. Our staff is always available 24/7 to triage a patient’s needs, and we do ask you call our team with any concerns. Most of the time, we are able to help patients avoid going to the hospital by providing interventions at home. In the event a patient needs immediate medical intervention, we are always in agreement to utilize emergency services. If a patient decides to pursue further treatments at the hospital, hospice services may be revoked until a patient returns home once again.
