The hospice mission is to provide compassion and care to terminally ill patients and their families. Your generosity can help the Senator Bob Hooper House fulfill this mission in the home-like setting of its residential facility.
At Senator Bob Hooper House, professionals with special training and expertise serve both patients and their families to provide routine care, education and support. In addition, the team has partnered with both Amedisys and Gilchrist Hospice, Inc. who provides a coordinated program of palliative (comfort) care and support services, helping them through the myriad of issues associated with the end of life. A medically directed interdisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, nursing aides, social workers, chaplains and trained volunteers work together, providing specialized medical care, spiritual counseling, answers to patientsâ€™ and family membersâ€™ questions and accessibility to on-call services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
