Social needs by encouraging special time with family and friends. Our social workers can help patients put their financial matters in order.
Emotional needs of the entire family by helping them cope with loneliness, isolation, and the fear of being abandoned.
Providing honest and compassionate answers to questions, and by encouraging them to express their thoughts and feelings.
Spiritual needs by encouraging them to share time with the Hospice team, members of the clergy, their minister, priest or rabbi.
