Hospice care is an interdisciplinary, team approach to care. Teams at Hospice of Broward County are organized geographically across the county and by the type of facility served. We have home care teams, skilled nursing home teams, assisted living facility teams and inpatient teams. Hospice team members consist of registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, spiritual care counselors, music therapists, holistic therapists, bereavement counselors, and volunteers. Bereavement support is provided for the family after the death of the patient through individual counseling and loss-specific support groups, including specialized children's programs.
The highly trained Hospice of Palm Beach County and Hospice of Broward County employees make ours a program that excels in innovative care and quality service to our community. We provide additional services above and beyond traditional hospice care, including thriving programs in music therapy, massage therapy, and bereavement.
