Most hospice care is provided in the home setting, or wherever home may be. For over 200 Gilchrist Hospice Care patients on any given day, home is in a long term care facility, assisted living facility or an independent living facility.
Gilchrist provides an additional layer of support and an enhanced level of expertise for seriously ill residents and their families so they can remain where they’re familiar with the staff and surroundings. We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with our facility partners to provide the finest care through the end of life. Gilchrist’s facility specific teams of nurses, health aides, social workers, spiritual care providers, volunteers, and bereavement counselors value the importance of developing positive staff-to-staff relationships in making every moment count for our patents and families.
We wish the very best to all our nursing home associates during National Nursing Home Week, and we thank all the facilities with whom we’re honored to work hand in hand each day!
