Leaders in Hospice Care

Aultman Alliance Hospice offers an array of services to provide assurance, peace and confidence.

Nursing care is provided on an intermittent basis, and a nurse is available 24 hours a day for questions or problem solving. Services are provided in the home and inpatient settings. Care services available include:

  • Pain Management – State-of-the-art pain and symptom control
  • Physician Services – Hospice coordinates patient care with the patient's physician and hospice medical director
  • Respite Care – Provided through an inpatient facility for up to 5 days, to allow the caregivers respite
  • Routine Care – Intermittent visits to the patient's place, as determined by the hospice team
  • Continuous Care – 24-hour, in-home care during a crisis
  • Inpatient Care – Available through an inpatient facility for symptom and/or pain control
  • Bereavement Care – Counseling for up to 13 months for the surviving family

Our local hospice care goes above and beyond the physical needs of a patient.

Care for terminally ill patients can be cumbersome for everyone involved. Hospice offers additional services to make the process less stressful: 

  • Financial Support – Hospice pays for medications and equipment related to the terminal illness
  • Home Care Aide – Assists patients with personal care needs and maintenance of a clean, safe and comfortable environment
  • Social Work – clinical intervention for emotional and social needs – coordination of community resources
  • Clergy – patient's spiritual leader remains involved – other spiritual support is also available
  • Therapies and Volunteers – physical, occupational, speech, massage and dietary – volunteer support services for respite and visitation

Hospice nurses work with the patient and family to provide the best-quality patient care. 

Skilled nurses provide home visits for patient care. Nurses offer readily available education and training for the family. To ensure the best care, nurses coordinate physician-ordered care. Hospice nurses also manage pain and symptoms.

 

Have your physician contact Aultman Alliance Hospice or call 330-596-7480 with any questions. 

When a patient's condition is determined to be terminal, with months rather than years of life expectancy, a request for local hospice care is appropriate.
