Carpenter Hospice has an approach to palliative care that reflects the hospice philosophy, through our comprehensive and compassionate programs for residents and their families. Such care seeks to maximize the individual’s quality of life; the emphasis is on living rather than dying.
We recognize that when cure is not possible, providing care and comfort is the priority. We realize the value of attending to the emotional, social, and spiritual needs of the resident along with the physical health care requirements. We view each person as having unique hopes, fears, anger, expectations, and desires. Our caregivers collaborate in interprofessional teams to provide compassionate supportive, palliative, end of life care, which is client-centered, holistic, and culturally sensitive.
The residential care area has 10 beds, all in private rooms, and has nursing and personal support staff available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Music Therapy is available for residents and their loved ones during the week.
The focus is on the person and their family/loved ones and there are many areas available for them such as quiet rooms, outside space, and family rooms.
Residential Care is supported by volunteers who assist in providing personal care as well as companionship.
