Hospice Services

Hospice is a philosophy aimed at providing palliative (comfort) care to patients in their end-of-life stages. To carry out these services, Namaste Hospice utilizes a medically-directed Interdisciplinary Team involving patients, their families, medical professionals and volunteers. We believe that a “family” includes anyone significant to the patient, regardless of blood relation. This means that Namaste will provide bereavement support to all family, not just the immediate family.

Our goal is to provide comfort, dignity and quality of life for our patients. Every effort is made by the hospice team to provide maximum physical comfort for the patient. Once the patient is comfortable, the hospice team then focuses on preparing the patient and loved ones emotionally and spiritually for death.

Namaste Hospice was created by seasoned hospice professionals who are committed to providing care that exceeds expectations. We seek to support the integrity and dignity of all people, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In order to be admitted onto Hospice, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • The patient must have a serious, life-limiting or terminal illness
  • The burdens of aggressive curative treatment have started to outweigh the benefit of such treatment
  • The patient and family have decided that their goal is to maximize comfort and quality of life
  • The patient’s primary care physician has certified that the patient is an appropriate recipient of hospice care

Hospice is a benefit of Medicare, Medicaid and most other private insurance programs. There is usually no out-of-pocket expense for patients and their families. The Namaste hospice care team includes:

  • Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs)
  • Certified Nurse’s Assistant (CNAs)
  • Physical Therapists
  • Medical Social Worker (MSW)
  • Chaplain
  • Volunteers
  • Medical Director
  • Other specialists as needed per the plan of care
