Who’s Who Of Hospice Services

Hospice care is a method of care delivered by Bonita Springs Healthcare Services from a setting that fits best with the level of care and support you need. The professionals you’ll find prioritize dignity, empathy, and comfort to all the patients they work with.

Hospice care centers pain and symptom management, but also implements a wide variety of physical, emotional, and spiritual care for comprehensive support in every stage of the hospice journey.

Each hospice patient has a team of professionals behind them to not only honor their directives, but to also work together on an interdisciplinary team to provide optimal care to the patient.

Hospice Physicians

The chosen physician closely monitors the progression of the patient’s life-limiting illness to prescribe the appropriate medications for optimal pain and symptom management.

The physician then coordinates care with the other hospice professionals to keep the patient comfortable.

Hospice Nurse

A hospice nurse specializes in pain management and symptom assessments to help keep the patient relaxed and comfortable. These RNs can also assist with medical equipment needs, and deal with any emergencies that come up.

Nurses at Bonita Springs Healthcare Services are always available 24/7 to answer questions, assist family members, and visit when necessary.

Hospice Social Workers

Social workers are available for a variety of emotional wellness services including grief support (for you and your loved ones), financial and insurance guidance, and to listen and find solutions to other concerns you may have.

A hospice social worker also plays a role in advocating for each patient’s end-of-life wishes, in addition to helping individuals manage their wide range of emotions and the impact of a life-limiting illness.

Hospice Chaplain

Spiritual support is another facet that Bonita Springs Healthcare Services provides — our hospice chaplains are on staff to offer their services to both patients and their families.

From listening to digging into tough conversations about what comes after death, it’s important that we provide comfort and let them know that they matter.

Hospice Aide

Hospice aide professionals help with day-to-day assistance with patients. From bathing and eating to dressing and other daily activities, they ensure all patients are safe and well taken care of.

This unique position allows you or your loved one to receive the patient-focused care that you deserve. At the end of the day, hospice aides are vital to the quality of life that is experienced through the little things like good company and conversation.

Hospice Volunteers

Hospice volunteers provide support through companionship, massage, running errands, and providing support when the patient needs it. Similar to a hospice aide, a volunteer enriches the quality of life for hospice patients — spirits are lifted, which can help make anyone feel a little bit better!

Hospice Care Through Bonita Springs Healthcare Services

Bonita Springs Healthcare Services provides two distinct types of hospice care for patients — at-home hospice care through our home health services and through our residential care facility, Hospice Care Home in Hollister.
