FACILITY COLLABORATION

 

Homestead Hospice recognizes that it is a privilege to be invited into your facility to provide care to your residents. We do not take this responsibility lightly. Homestead Hospice is not just another vendor in your building. We are a resource to you and will collaborate with your team in the care of your residents.

 

After consulting with Administrators, Directors of Nursing, Social Workers and Activity Directors in many facilities, we developed a comprehensive program that is tailored to your needs.

 

This program includes education, activities, spiritual connections, care collaboration, teamwork and communication to ensure best practices for both of our teams as we work together to care for your residents. We have designed a program, backed by processes, policies and tools to ensure that we deliver what we promise.
