Making Hospice Better
Star City Hospice specializes in patient focused healthcare services to work alongside the patient’s family in order to give them the best hospice care possible. We understand the importance of these health services and provide our employees with the resources and time necessary to make sure each patient has the proper amount of care. We have created a system to ensure our team’s caseload is consistently manageable to make sure there are no gaps in the care we provide.
Our patient-to-staff ratio is designed specifically to allow for increased frequency of visits and visitation time so that every family and patient is receiving excellent care. Across all of our services our teams provide support physically, emotionally, and spiritually throughout the entirety of our time serving a patient. Our team of trained care providers include:
Professional Home Health Aides
The size of our team means that we are able to ensure patients who require home visits are able to receive them regularly, even as far as offering continuous care for times when family members temporarily cannot provide care or during times when symptoms aren’t as manageable. No matter where our patients call home we make it a goal to help them remain there so they are most comfortable.
In hospice care situations where the health of a patient may change we will quickly adapt and can provide similar or alternative services.
This means in situations where a patient is temporarily moved to a healthcare facility our team can continue to provide patient care to help them manage symptoms and get back to their home. In situations where the health of a patient has declined over time we are able to adapt and add additional home visits; this type of care can be in cooperation with the patient’s physician, family, and any other healthcare services they may be receiving.
If the circumstances call for it we can provide 24/7 continuous care to ensure that a professional is able to be with your loved one for immediate or emergency support. Our team has a dedicated group for after-hours care that can provide 24/7 assistance and care depending on the needs of the patient and when 24/7 care is not necessary we have Nurse Managers on staff that is available by phone to provide helpful information and direct family members to the right resources during an emergency 24-hours a day. Star City Hospice is invested in providing excellent level care to make your loved ones feel at peace in their home, wherever that may be at the time.
Hospice Care Services
Services that fall under hospice can cover many different situations and can be a great resource for patients and their families. Star City Hospice offers a variety of services from our caring, attentive nursing staff to our long-term bereavement support. During times of medical uncertainty we understand that reaching out for help can be difficult for family members of patients and to simplify this we offer services that can be useful throughout all stages of your loved one’s health journey.
Star City Hospice offers short-term Respite Care in situations where the family and caregivers need to temporarily step away from providing care. Respite care is utilized when family members need space away from providing care to attend an event, travel out of town, or simply have some time to rest and recharge. In these situations patients receive full-time care for the duration the family is away and they are supported fully and in excellent hands.
Palliative Care is offered in cases where patients need long-form care. This type of care can be utilized for years and is meant to help patients with any daily needs, creating a better quality of life, and helping with overall comfort.
We offer Continuous Care during times when symptoms are more difficult to manage. This service is a temporary service that helps when family members are overwhelmed and gives the patients access to immediate care in case of a potential health setback.
Our Bereavement Service is for family members who have lost a loved one. During times of loss we need as much support as possible, so we offer up to 13 months of support in the form of providing resources, phone support, supportive mailings, and in-person support. We will respect your personal boundaries while aiming to help you during the bereavement process.
