Hospice and Palliative Care

Hospice and palliative care bring compassion and support to not only the patient, but also, to family members. It incorporates a multi-disciplinary team approach to medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support. The resident’s needs, desires, comfort, dignity and quality of life are the focus.

While there are over 4,500 hospice organizations in the US today, hospice fits United Methodist Communities’ mission of compassionate care by partnering with local hospice agencies. As a senior service organization with vast experience, hospice complements our faith-based approach. When a cure is no longer possible, hospice brings families the support and peace-of-mind they deserve.

Our vision to grow through creativity, innovation and gracious hospitality, promotes high resident and family expectations during a vitally important period of the human experience. Our communities’ enhanced environments and amenities lend themselves to choosing United Methodist Communities for hospice.

When a person has been medically certified to have less than six months to live, the focus becomes attending to their total comfort and unprecedented needs. An individual’s end-of-life experience should be characterized by an enhanced level of compassionate care and attention to detail with which they have lived.

A multi-disciplinary team of professionals attend to not only the resident, but the entire family, as they support their loved one and deal with the grieving process. A nurse, social worker, chaplain, nursing aide, and others are equipped to handle the medical, social, emotional, spiritual, and other unique needs that often arise. United Methodist Communities’ values of compassion, respect, stewardship and service, promote dignity.
