Hospice

Hospice

The primary goal of Hospice is the palliation of symptoms in the terminally ill patient by the use of an interdisciplinary team and volunteers. Physical, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual support are provided to the patient and family in the home, nursing home or hospital setting.

The primary service is visits from nurses, Home Health aides, Social Services, chaplains and volunteers to individuals who have a terminal illness with a life expectancy of six months or less and their families. Bereavement services assist survivors in coping with their loss. All nursing staff and volunteers are trained in the Hospice philosophy, palliative care and emotional support. A nurse is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Good Samaritan Health Systems' Hospice services patients in Buffalo, Custer, Franklin, Furnas, Garfield, Harlan, Kearney, Loup, Phelps and Valley counties.
