One Identified Community Liaison
Is dedicated to take care of everything you and your family need. After an inquiry is made, Grane Hospice will handle the rest! The admission process will begin immediately following a referral regardless if it is day or night. Our hospice staff will provide you, your family, facility and physician with real time updates. Constant communication is initiated at time of referral. Our Community Liaison will oversee and manage your care to make sure you and your family are provided with everything you need.
Safe and Efficient Transition Home
Grane will obtain and review clinical information, reach out to family, coordinate with the hospital or facility staff for discharge to home and your admission to Grane Hospice. We focus on making the transition to home as easy as possible for the patient.
Grane Hospice provides the following services:
  • Order any medical equipment that is needed and have it delivered to your home prior to the patient’s arrival
  • Identify the family’s or facility’s preferred pharmacy to have the medications provided as convenient and as quickly as possible, or have all prescribed medications delivered to your home, including those not related to the terminal diagnosis
  • Provide consultations and education to family’s on providing the safest environment possible for a loved one while remaining at home
  • Collaborate with the patient, family, and caregivers to provide the customized care that each patient wants and deserves
Consistency/Continuity in Care
We identify one hospice team to care for each patient/facility. Low patient to staff ratios allow us to have a consistent, daily presence. Consecutive 3-day SN visits, upon admission, allows us to create a true and comprehensive individualized plan of care.
Communication/Response Time
Grane Hospice Care provides weekend and evening 24/7 availability to speak to a human, not a machine. We have a 15-minute response time from the time a call is placed to our agency.  We staff in the areas we service, so each hospice team is local and available to meet patient needs as effectively as possible.
Aging in Place
We work with each facility’s contracted/preferred providers so we are able to assist with creating a safe environment wherever our patients consider home.
Industry Knowledge
We customize our services to work within the guidelines of each industry we service. We focus on being a part of their team, working within regulatory and policy perimeters.
Vigil Services
Our dedicated team of volunteers and staff feel no patient should die alone and families or caregivers should be supported through their very difficult journey. Vigil Services are offered to families and caregivers to support them and assure patients are comfortable through their last days.
