Hospice is organized to provide a health-care program to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs of the terminally ill and their families. Hospice services are designed to complement existing health-care services available to the general public. Hospice care utilizes an interdisciplinary team composed of physicians, nurses, volunteers, clergy, and a social worker to provide care, assistance, guidance and support to patients and their families during and following the last phase of terminal illness. The Hospice benefit is designed to meet the needs of each patient and their families.
The mission of Oaklawn Hospice is to provide superior end of life care in a compassionate and professional manner to terminally ill patients and their families in the community, respecting dignity and optimizing comfort to ensure quality of life to the end of life.
