Counseling for our patients and families. We help you through the emotional, financial and spiritual process.
It is certainly a delicate and difficult period for a family to deal with a terminal illness. We assist with organization, coordination, and implementation of necessary paperwork, as well as daily medical coordination, including the Medicare Hospice Benefit and private insurance forms. Our Medical Social Worker provides emotional support to the patient, family and staff, and provides ongoing education and assistance with available Grane Hospice services. The Medical Social Worker will make an initial visit to a new hospice patient within 5 days of admission and will continue to make visits on a monthly basis.
Grane Hospice offers pastoral care for both routine and emergency purposes. The Pastoral Care team at Grane Hospice is comprised of ordained ministers with various religious affiliations. In keeping with the Hospice philosophy, the goal of the pastoral care team is to provide an interfaith forum where spiritual needs of the individual come first, not the denomination. Patients and their families will be relieved knowing Grane Hospice provides spiritual services during their entire journey. The spiritual team can also assist with funeral arrangements and conducting memorial services.
