Synopsis of Business
At Lotus Blossom Hospice and Palliative Care, we specialize in providing care to patients in the comfort of their homes. With palliative care, we manage symptoms of the chronic illness while the patient is still seeking curative measures, such as physical or occupational therapies, dialysis, chemotherapy, etc. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family. Hospice care focuses on the quality of life for the patient who is experiencing more advanced, life-limiting illnesses when all curative measures have been exhausted and their caregiver. Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of an incurable disease so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. With hospice care, we become a medical entity offering support through our medical directors, nurses, social worker, chaplain, certified nurse aides, and volunteers. Medications and supplies, such as incontinence supplies, are delivered directly to the home of the patient to assist in comfort measures. Both services provide an added layer of support for patients and families. We help them achieve the best quality of life during stressful situations. Quality of life is very important in managing a serious illness and patient outcomes can improve with these comfort measures. Patients and their families should never feel alone during these highly emotional times. Lotus Blossom Hospice and Palliative Care strives to exceed expectations. We are accredited by ACHC which further exemplifies our mission of excellence. We honor every patient that allows us to care for their precious lives.
