Pathways Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. Our program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, and in familiar surroundings. Pathways Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregiver. Our hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family/caregiver, lifestyle, values and wishes.
Utilizing an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, hospice aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors, and others, Pathways Hospice provides palliative care in the home, short-term inpatient services, mobilization and coordination of ancillary services, and bereavement support.
Pathways Hospice is guided by a tradition of personal, clinical and technological excellence. We believe that serving patients in the community setting is the most important activity of the organization.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of patient care with compassion and respect for each person.
Hospice affirms life.
Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.
Hospice exist in the belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community, patients, families and caregivers will be free to attain a degree of mental preparation for death that is satisfying to them.
Pathways Hospice recognizes these values and their roles in fulfilling this mission.
What does choosing Pathways Hospice mean?
Choosing Pathways Hospice does not mean giving up. Many think Hospice requires you to discontinue treatment options for your illness. Pathways Hospice wishes to walk with you and assist you in treatments that are helping you medically while working with family, physicians and Hospice guidelines.
It can be difficult to know where to turn when you or your loved one is facing a life changing and life limiting diagnosis. In addition the term Hospice can cause fear and anxiety as it is often misunderstood.
Many Pathways Hospice patients maintain normal active lives. Some still drive ad do many things for themselves. Pathways Hospice is available to anyone who has an end stage disease process and that has a limited life expectancy of 6 months or less, if the disease runs its normal course.
Services are provided without regard to race, color, national origin, age and disability.
