Willow Tree Hospice is different from other hospices
Willow Tree Hospice is a community agency founded by nurses and deeply rooted in the local area. Our highly-trained and qualified team is dedicated to providing care and support for each individual’s end-of-life journey.
Our Certified Hospice Medical Director works with our interdisciplinary team to ensure that the care goals for each patient are achieved. A registered nurse oversees an individualized plan of care and coordinates with the patient’s physician to meet the changing needs of each patient. Certified nursing assistants will help with personal care of the patient, based upon the plan of care developed by the RN in collaboration with the patient, physician, and family.
A chaplain and social worker will also offer the patient and the family spiritual and emotional support. In addition, we have a cadre of volunteers who provide visits for companionship. We offer a number of complimentary therapies including gentle touch therapies and pet therapy.
Our certified music therapist works with patients at all stages throughout a patient’s journey, utilizing music to decrease anxiety and pain, promote relaxation, facilitate communication, and provide support in life review and legacy work.
Bereavement support is offered to families for at least 13 months after their loved one has passed.
