The Harbor Grace Hospice Team

Medical Director: Expert in symptom management, the Hospice Medical Director is a physician specially trained in the control of pain and management of symptoms. The Medical Director leads the team in the development and implementation of the individualized plan of care. She is available to work with the patient’s attending physician and is involved in community education.

Nursing: Registered Nurses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and serve as the physician’s “eyes and ears” for the patient at home or in our Inpatient Unit.
An R.N. oversees the entire care of the patient and is skilled in assessment and management of pain and uncomfortable symptoms patients may experience. Nurses may assist in the teaching of caregivers- everything from giving injections to the proper turning of a bed bound patient.

Certified Nursing Assistants: Provide assistance with patients’ day to day needs. A C.N.A. visit can include a bath, changing linens, assisting with a meal and tidying up a patient’s area. The nurse will determine the frequency of visits during the admission process.

Social Worker: The hospice Social Worker may provide a wide variety of services, including emotional support and assisting families to connect with other community resources. They are also able to provide counseling for patients and their families, help with the completion of forms and paperwork, and assist with financial or legal concerns. They are available to help patients and their loved ones sort through the often overwhelming issues that may surround a terminal illness.

Chaplains: Our chaplains are available to help patients and families work through spiritual conflict or unresolved issues. They may also be used as support person to persons of all faiths and will work with a patient’s clergy if requested to do so.

Volunteers: Our volunteers give the gift of their time to provide support to the patient and family.

Bereavement: Bereavement services are provided to families for one year after the death of their loved one. Harbor Grace support staff remain in contact with family members through phone calls, visits and informational mailings. Grief support groups are also available.
