Resolutions Hospice provides individualized care through an Interdisciplinary team. This team consists of the Registered nurse, Physician, Social worker, Chaplain, Dietician and the Volunteer. Members of the Interdisciplinary team are considered "core" services by Medicare, and must be provided by employees of the hospice.

Registered Nurse:
Oversees the patient care plan. Makes visits as needed, but no less frequent than every 2 weeks. Directs care to be provided by the other members of the Interdisciplinary team.

Physician:
Patients may elect to have their own referring physician follow, or have a hospice physician. Either way, the hospice physician will assure that care provided is palliative and related to the terminal diagnosis.

Social Worker:
Assists in many social aspects of care such as nursing facility placement if needed, funeral arrangements, advance directives and grief counseling.

Chaplain:
Assists the family with spiritual aspects during hospice care, and with bereavement counseling after the patient has died.

Dietician:
Counsels family and staff members related to dietary issues surrounding end of life care. May be especially helpful in the event that tube feedings need to be discontinued, as this is a very difficult decision that must be made with careful consideration and planning.

Volunteer:
Volunteers are a very important part of Hospice care. Members of the community as well as family members of former Hospice patients are encouraged to participate in our volunteer program.

Volunteers may provide services either in the way of clerical support to the office, or through patient care activities.

  • Support for patients. This can include visiting, reading, taking walks, writing letters, bringing in music, supervising visits with pets and/or massage therapy, for volunteers with the necessary skills.
  • Respite and support for family members. Volunteers can assist with shopping or household maintenance, or allow family caregivers the opportunity to take care of necessary errands and get some time away from the house.
  • Bereavement support programs. Hospice volunteers can work closely with the hospice's professional bereavement staff.

Services that are not covered by hospice are; services for conditions unrelated to the terminal illness, or services for the terminal diagnosis that are not called for in the hospice care plan or arranged for by the hospice program.
