The decision to place a loved one in hospice care is oftentimes met with a heavy heart and uncertainty.
As family members grieve, knowing where to turn can feel like a race against the clock. That’s why our care team at Ethos Hospice comes to you. No matter when you need us, our on-call nurses are available 24/7 with the support and comfort your loved one needs. Whether that’s a residential home, nursing facility, long-term care center or your private home, we offer premier quality from the comfort of a familiar setting.
During her father’s time of need, Sue Wiger and her sister made the joint decision to call our care team at Ethos Hospice. By sharing her experience, we hope to shine a light on the uncertainty that so many families face during these trying times.
For Sue, support was there at a moment’s notice. “Within an hour, Ethos was in my dad's room to meet with me.”
Connecting with Our Seasoned Team
Our care team at Ethos Hospice is known for upholding the perfect balance of quality care and compassion. After delivering key services such as managing medications and easing pain, we go one step further.
Through our life-enriching services, we bring the power of healing touch, music, and pet therapy into our patients’ lives. All the while, we tailor this comfort-oriented support to your loved one’s goals and desires with personalization at heart.
The consistency of our genuine care was what stood out to Sue. “Everyone on the staff from the social worker to the nurse to the chaplain just cared so much about my dad.”
While carefully selecting highly-experienced team members and conducting in-depth hospice training, we ensure alignment with the patient-first values that make Ethos different.
Extending Our Support to Families
At Ethos, family support is an integral part of the entire hospice care process. In turn, we not only offer grief and spiritual counseling for family members during the process, but also provide bereavement support after their loved one’s end-of-life journey.
For Sue, the personable and attentive support of our team made a marked difference for her and her family. “They held my hand on the days when we’re all human… I’m just so grateful to Ethos for their kindness.”
Our commitment extends to the community as a whole. No matter where we find ourselves, we believe in bringing peace to every life we touch.
