Hospice Care Nurses

hospice care nursesAria Hospice nurses have a profound passion for providing hospice care to their patients. Each nurse has specialized training in pain and symptom management. Nurses are at the heart of the Aria Hospice team, coordinating and implementing the patient’s individualized plan of care. Aria Hospice nurses are continually assessing the patient’s conditions and needs, addressing both the patient and family needs. Our nurses communicate with the patient’s physicians in order to implement comfort measures as well as provide information and education to patients and family members.

Aria Hospice nurses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They regularly assess each patient’s condition and work with Aria Hospice physicians to determine the most effective treatment options and medication regimes for pain and symptom management.

Aria Hospice nurses are always ready and available to educate the patient’s family caregivers about a patient’s medical condition and to provide information to enhance the care and support of the patient. Aria Hospice nurses are part of the Aria team that work with the patient and family as partners in choosing effective care modalities.

Furthermore, Aria Hospice ensures that our nurses’ patient load is always the lowest in comparison to all other hospices. This ensures that our nurses always have plenty of time to assess the patient, develop appropriate plans of care and ensure the patient’s family is supported at all times.

Once a physician certifies that an illness is terminal, (a life expectancy of six months or less), they will collaborate with the Aria Hospice team for services, tailored to the needs and wishes of the patient.

Many patients have cancer, but Aria Hospice cares for individuals with many other life-limiting illness, including heart and lung disease, kidney disease, neurological disorders, stroke, Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Family and friends also receive the benefit of hospice care, to help them support the patient and adapt to changes in their lives.

Many people mistakenly believe that all hospice patients are bed-bound, critically ill, and unable to continue living life to the fullest. Hospice celebrates life and supports you in achieving your individual needs in this chapter of your life.

who can receive hospice care


After receiving a diagnosis for limited life expectancy, patients must make an important choice about goals for their treatment.

why choose aria hospice care

When a physician determines that there is no curative treatment for a particular illness, the treatment is not helping any longer or you decide that the side effects of treatment are too great, you may consider choosing comfort care as your ultimate goal.

Aggressive medical treatment focuses on curing the physical illness rather than satisfying the patient’s emotional and spiritual needs. It often requires intensive care in a clinical setting that can diminish quality of life. Hospice care has the focus of comfort, by relieving pain and other symptoms, while continuing to address emotional and spiritual needs of both the patient and family.

Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death, but relieves pain and physical discomfort so that the patient can experience a more peaceful and satisfying quality of life. At Aria Hospice, care is designed to primarily take place in the home or place of residence. Many families tell us that they waited too long to take full advantage of all the benefits offered by hospice care.
