We help to ease the end of life.
When you choose hospice, Midwest CareCenter works with you and your family to develop a plan that accommodates your medical needs and care choices and respects your cultural and spiritual traditions. You, your family and caregivers—and your doctor—remain important and active members of your care team.
Your hospice team cares for you physically, emotionally and spiritually. We ease the issues presented by advanced illness, always focusing on maintaining your quality of life. We communicate openly and regularly with your doctor and other professionals who are important to your care.
- The clinical members of your team—your doctors and nurses—help keep your pain and other discomfort at bay.
- Chaplains can offer emotional and spiritual support.
- Your social worker assists you in making healthcare decisions and helps you identify your emotional and spiritual needs as well as appropriate support for them.
- Certified nurse’s aides help you with personal care, such as bathing, dressing, shaving, hair care and changing bed linens.
- Grief support counselors can help you and your loved ones make sense of grief reactions, develop coping strategies and discuss or resolve practical issues.
- Trained hospice volunteers are available, if you would like, to help provide additional support to you and your family.
- We are available 24 hours a day when you, your family members or caregivers have questions and concerns.
You receive care in the place you and your family prefer. That can be in your own home, in a hospital or nursing home or in another long-term care setting. The Marshak Family Hospice Pavilion and Hospice Suite at Northwest Community Hospital are also available when medically necessary.
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans cover hospice care, and we will work with you to explain and evaluate payment options. We also offer charity care and financial assistance to qualified patients.
Call us to learn more about our hospice services. We will meet with you and your family at home, in the hospital, at an outpatient office, or at the assisted living or long-term care center where you live.
