Each patient is an individual with specific, unique needs. Franciscan Hospice Care’s interdisciplinary team of caring professionals works with each patient and the family to develop a personal plan of care appropriate to the medical, social, emotional, physical and pastoral needs of the patient. The interdisciplinary team includes the medical director, hospice care director, nurses, social worker, pharmacist, pastoral care director and volunteer coordinator. The administrator of Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care attends the weekly meetings. The team is concerned with each patient individually and continues to assess, evaluate and make changes in the plan of care as necessary. Every plan of care is guided by the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services.
