Hospice and Palliative Care in Sussex County
Hospice fits United Methodist Communities at Bristol Glen’s mission of compassionate care through partnerships with local hospice agencies. As an organization with vast experience caring for older adults, hospice complements our faith-based approach. When a cure is no longer possible, hospice brings families the support and peace-of-mind they deserve.
Hospice and palliative care allow anyone medically certified to have less than six months to live, to remain comfortable in peaceful and serene surroundings. Residents’ needs, desires, comfort, dignity and quality of life, are primary.
A multi-disciplinary professional team includes a nurse, social worker, chaplain, nursing aide, and other associates who concentrate on medical care; pain management; and social, emotional and spiritual support. United Methodist Communities’ values of compassion, respect, stewardship and service, promote dignity.
