When a patient’s life expectancy is limited, comfort is just a phone call away. Wayne Memorial Hospital’s Hospice Team, part of the Hospital’s Home Health Department, provides a full range of compassionate care for the dying so they may live their lives to the fullest. Hospice care neither hastens nor postpones death; instead, it eases symptoms of discomfort and offers scientifically advanced pain control, supporting a patient’s desire to die with dignity and with as much control as possible in the comfort of their own home. Our multi-disciplinary team of professionals and trained volunteers understand how unique the dying process is for everyone involved.
In an effort to broaden our base of volunteers in Wayne and Pike Counties, the Wayne Memorial Hospital Hospice program will be hosting fall training at Wayne Memorial Hospital on November 8th, November 15th and November 17th. You must attend all three sessions in addition to the WMH General Orientation. If you have time and compassion to share with others, please call 253-8737 to enroll by November 3rd.
