This is the hospice care you’ll hear about the most. Medical and nursing care for your loved from a registered nurse (sometimes called ‘case manager’) wherever the patient calls home. That can be their long-time residence or a nursing home, an assisted living or other facility like a personal care home. (*note* some patients do choose to go to one of our hospice houses- read more about them here)
Each patient and their family is matched with a social worker who will help with a wide-range of issues. This is the person you turn to for information about support services available in your community or for direction on getting answers to financial and legal questions. The social worker can provide counsel if needed.
Many families appreciate that Cornerstone has a number of chaplains who are specialty trained to be there with you to provide spiritual support. We have Chaplains from various faith backgrounds and denominations who will assist your family during this time and will gladly work with your own clergy person as you request.
A CNA (Certified Nursing Aide) will visit regularly to assist our patient with bathing and personal care.
Should you desire, Cornerstone will have a specially-trained volunteer come to you to provide support that you may not know you want right off the bat. TIP: a volunteer to sit and talk with, read to or simply be there for your loved one– to give you a breather– is something you will come to value greatly!
