The mission of All Caring Hospice is to understand and help guide our patients’ quest for a rewarding quality of life in their final days and to help their circle of family and friends support them in life and grieve for them in death. All Caring pledges to provide expert hospice care for the comfort and dignity of the terminally ill by addressing their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. All Caring Hospice seeks to provide care for all appropriate patients and families who need hospice services regardless of their ability to pay.
Anyone diagnosed with a limited life expectancy can receive All Caring Hospice care. A physician certifies that the illness is terminal, (with a life expectancy of 6 months or less). The physician collaborates with the All Caring Hospice team for services, tailored to the needs and wishes of the patient. Many patients have cancer, but All Caring Hospice cares for those with many other life-limiting illness, including heart and lung disease, kidney disease, neurological disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Family and friends also receive the benefit of hospice care, to help them support the patient and adapt to changes in their lives. All Caring Hospice continues supporting families for over one year after the patient’s death.
Many people mistakenly believe that hospice patients are bed-bound, critically ill, and unable to continue living life to the fullest. Hospice celebrates life and supports you in achieving your individual needs in this chapter of your life. Contact the Admission Coordinator at All Caring Hospice in Yougstown Ohio with any questions you may have about hospice care or eligibility.
After receiving a diagnosis for limited life expectancy, patients must make an important choice about goals for their treatment. When your physician tells you that there is no curative treatment for your illness, the treatment is not helping any longer or you decide that the side effects of treatment are too great, you may consider choosing comfort care as your goal.
Aggressive medical treatment focuses on curing the physical illness rather than satisfying the patient’s emotional and spiritual needs. It often requires intensive care in a clinical setting that can diminish quality of life. Hospice care has the focus of comfort, by relieving pain and other symptoms, while continuing to address emotional and spiritual needs of both the patient and family.
All Caring Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death, but relieves pain and physical discomfort so that the patient can experience a more peaceful and satisfying quality of life. Hospice care is designed to primarily take place in the home. Many families tell us that they waited too long to take full advantage of all the benefits offered by hospice care.
