Ivy Creek Hospice - Wetumpka
Hospice is about living – not dying! Many patients qualify for hospice care earlier than they expected and research proves patients live longer with hospice than without! It is aggressive symptom management that allows someone with an end stage illness to have a higher quality of life. You do have a choice!
Frequent ED visits and hospitalizations, struggles with daily care of a loved one, high pill burden and uncontrolled symptoms…. are not the only options you have to manage your illness.
The hospice team will work with you, your loved ones, and your primary care doctor to help you manage your symptoms in the comfort of your own home. A Registered Nurse is available to come to your home 24/7. Help is only a phone call away.
Hospice is not just for cancer patients! Any diagnosis can be considered for hospice care. The Ivy Creek Hospice Medical Director, Dr. Melissa Thompson, is board certified in hospice and palliative care. For you, that means a higher level of knowledge and expertise is partnering with your primary care doctor to provide the very best hospice care available.
