Athena Hospice Services

Hospice care is patient centered and patient directed. It is one of the best examples in health care of collaboration by an interdisciplinary team dedicated to meeting the needs of the patient and family. In consultation with the patient, his or her loved ones, primary caregiver, and the patient’s own physician, the hospice team prepares an individual plan of care based on patient and family needs and goals.

Direct care is provided by the primary caregiver, if available, and augmented by the hospice team. Care is provided wherever the patient calls home. Hospice also provides medications related to comfort and the terminal diagnosis, supplies, and durable medical equipment that is needed. Hospice is designed to support the care that the patient’s primary caregiver provides.
