Loving Hands Hospice has been a leader in hospice care for over 10 years. We are a family owned and operated hospice that is committed to providing the most comprehensive care and support to individuals facing life-limiting illnesses.
We here at Loving Hands Hospice follow a few simple rules.
1. To provide high quality care in surroundings familiar to the patient and family, where everyone can feel secure and comfortable.
2. To provide compassionate care to patients and families experiencing the final phase of life’s journey.
3. To provide a variety of services in an interdisciplinary team fashion.
Our competent and professional staff will enable you to live each day to the fullest, while sharing the time that remains in the supportive circle of family and friends.
Music therapy is frequently used in the treatment of those with a terminal illness and end of life care. Music can truly bring peace and comfort. The therapist may play a patient’s favorite songs at their bedside to trigger memory of their past and improve their quality of life. Soothing music can reduce restlessness, help to regulate breathing patterns, and improve overall environment of the patient and family.
When a loved one dies, grief is an essential step in the healing process. There is no right way to grieve. It is an individual process and a natural part of life. Grief will allow to adjust to life after loss. Loving Hands Hospice understands the significance of losing someone and the impact it can have on their loved ones’ lives. We're here to help individuals and families navigate through grief in a way that is focused on coping and healing.
Spirituality plays an integral role in the care of the terminally ill patient. It can be described as that which gives meaning to life. Spirituality is the universal human need for love, hope, value and dignity and may or may not involve religious beliefs and practices. Our spiritual counselors provide a calming presence with empathetic listening and prayers and is a support to families. We also work with community clergy to relieve fear, anxiety and despair so one feels heard, loved and accepted in the process of coming to terms or coping with terminal illness.
At Loving Hands Hospice, we are aware of different cultural beliefs surrounding end-of-life care and respecting cultural differences and beliefs. The end-of-life process is a significant experience for a person who is dying and his or her family, and it can often be influenced by values, beliefs, rituals, language, and social heritage of a person and his way of life. Our social worker provides end-of-life care to patients across diverse settings and is keenly aware that this phase of life is usually accompanied by intense emotions so awareness of cultural differences is very important.
