Compassionate care when you need it most
Haven Hospice professionals work with patients and families to create a plan of care that will manage the distressing pain and symptoms of their illness, as well as coordinate the patient’s care and medications with their physician and other healthcare providers. Haven Hospice services can be delivered in the home, in a skilled nursing facility, a nursing home or in a hospital. Hospice services and programs are all-encompassing and provide assistance with the physical, medical, emotional, and spiritual challenges associated with advanced illnesses.
Haven Hospice professionals provide expert pain and symptom management to promote and maximize the quality of life so that the patient can spend more time with family and friends as well as enjoy favorite activities.
Haven Hospice care provides resources to support families and caregivers at night and on weekends to reduce the need for emergency room visits and hospital re-admissions because the care plan and medications are being consistently managed.
The patient is provided with all of the necessary medications, medical supplies and medical equipment needed to manage their illness.
Over 90 percent of patients are cared for in their homes or wherever they call home. But when there is a need for short-term, inpatient care, Haven offers free-standing care centers in Gainesville, Palatka, Chiefland, Lake City and Orange Park.
Haven Hospice teams can educate the patient, family and caregivers about the issues and challenges related to patient care and the available resources which can be of assistance.
- The patient and family benefit from the support from a variety of Haven professionals: physicians, nurses, social workers, volunteers and chaplains.
