Assured Hospice Care offers the support of a coordinated and compassionate team of health care professionals, including registered nurses, social workers, and professional care aides, who work closely with the primary care physician. Our palliative-care approach focuses on providing relief from symptoms, pain and stress, working to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family.
Patients who have a good relationship or rapport with their existing primary care physician are encouraged to have their own doctor continue to follow their care.
For patients that reside in a skilled nursing facility or other facility that has an on-site physician, then the facility physician takes the role of primary doctor.
In other cases, the hospice medical director may head the care team.
