Hospice Services at Crown

FAITH-BASED COMFORT CARE

If your loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness with a prognosis of six months or less, it’s time for hospice care. Our hospice services focus on physical comfort, emotional care, and spiritual support.

At Crown, we encourage our patients and their loved ones to get started with hospice care as soon as possible. Starting the process of hospice care is not giving up on your loved one and it does not hasten their passing. Instead, hospice care will enhance their quality of life and give you more quality time and opportunities for special moments together.

Crown Hospice Care Teams

At Crown Hospice your loved one will be assigned a care team, upon admittance, who will be with them throughout their entire time with Crown. Every member of your care team is here to support you and your loved one wherever they call home. From seeing to all of their medical and comfort needs to providing prayer and emotional support.

Registered Nurses

Crown Hospice RNs are your care team leaders. Our RNs will visit your loved one to two times per week (or more if necessary), manage their comfort and care and see to their medical/physical needs.

Crown Hospice Services

QUALITY CARE AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

We have developed our hospice care services to directly benefit our patients, their loved ones, and those who are responsible for their care. We offer the following services:

Nursing Services

Our Registered Nurses provide other care team members with insight into our patient’s needs and work to ensure that their comfort is considered. They visit patients regularly and travel to any location that a patient calls home.

Physician Services

At Crown, we partner with reputable physicians to help treat our patients. However, if your loved one would like to stay in the care of their personal physician upon entering into our care, we will honor that request. If their personal physician agrees to keep them as their patient, Crown physicians will collaborate with them to create the best care plan for your loved one.

Pain Management

Crown Hospice pain management services are customized toward what your loved one needs. Pain management is intended to enhance quality of life for our patients, so they can live in comfort and enjoy their final season. Our pain management services are customized towards your loved one’s needs, and are controlled by a Registered Nurse.

Personal Care & Homemakers Services

Our personal care and homemaker services are here to offer you a helping hand when you need it most. From helping your loved one with their ADLs, to folding that last load of laundry to carrying in groceries from the care, we want you to feel supported.

Spiritual Support

As a faith-based hospice care provider, Crown Hospice believes that spiritual support is just as important as physical care. Our team prays over our patients and their loved ones every week. Additionally, our Chaplains, Nurses, and volunteers are always here to pray over you and provide spiritual healing while on the job.

Crown Hospice recognizes that not all patients or families will desire spiritual support. We respect all religions, world views, and faiths, and you may choose to not receive spiritual care.

Counseling & Social Services

We are proud to employ social workers who help gauge how patients, family members, and caregivers are coping. Our social workers know how to look for signs of depression, anxiety, and stress. Crown Hospice of Victoria social workers work closely with bereavement coordinators to ensure that emotional support is provided and prioritized.
