Our hospice medical directors are physicians with significant experience in hospice and palliative care. These compassionate doctors ensure that patient care goals are being met.
Our nurses deliver specialized care related to each patient’s needs and help implement a plan of care that seeks to give terminally ill patients a quality end of life experience.
Our hospice social workers are licensed, skilled professionals that assist our hospice teams in understanding social and emotional factors related to a patient’s terminal illness. These caring individuals assess psychosocial, environmental, and financial needs and provide coordination to help alleviate difficulties where possible.
Our hospice chaplains provide spiritual guidance and counseling to hospice patients, their family members and caregivers. Wherever the patient lives, hospice chaplains deliver care while emphasizing dignity and peace.
Hospice nursing aides are trained and certified to assist patients with activities that include changing clothing, bathing and helping with hygienic routines such as brushing teeth and washing hair. These supportive team members also instruct families and caregivers in how to perform basic healthcare routines.
We recruit hospice volunteers to provide companionship and encouragement for patients, caregivers and family members
We believe that access to patient information is critical to delivering high-quality home care. Encompass Health Connection, our secure, web-based portal, allows physicians and clinical care teams to review every step of a patient’s care. This detailed system creates visibility into patient diagnoses, orders, medications and overall progress.
We are committed to going above and beyond, never settling for anything less than excellence. We pride ourselves on being industry leaders and challenge ourselves to continuously improve.
We start with empathy, taking the time to understand the physical, mental and emotional needs of each other and those we support. We listen, make deep connections and engage on a personal level to better serve those we support.
We do the right thing the right way, no matter how difficult, even when no one is looking. We’re not afraid to have hard conversations. If we make a mistake, we acknowledge it, proactively find a resolution and make it right going forward.
We have a positive spirit and find the light even in the most difficult situations. We bring our whole self to work. We celebrate successes and inspire others to create meaningful impact.
We believe our individual strengths make us stronger together. We take accountability for our actions, connect across teams and lean in to get it done – at all levels of the company.
