Masonicare offers comprehensive services for helping patients and their families get the most out of their limited time together. Our care teams can support inpatients at the Masonicare Health Center, at Masonicare at Newtown, or at any hospital or facility, statewide. We’ll take a holistic approach, working to address the emotional and physical needs of the entire family. Medicare and many private health insurance plans cover inpatient hospice care for patients with fewer than 6 months to live.
It may be recommended for patients with complex medical needs or those who do not have an in-home caregiver. Hospice & palliative services provide comprehensive medical, emotional, social, and spiritual support for the patient and the entire family. The goal is to ease the patient’s distressing symptoms and pain, while allowing the patient to remain lucid.
Any adult with a life-limiting illness.
Professional guidance and support from an inter-disciplinary team skilled at helping families cope with the many issues that arise at the end of life. They counsel the patient, caregiver, and family on important decisions; chief among them, how best to manage pain. Caring volunteers can perform helpful tasks, allowing families to make the most of remaining time together.
Masonicare has over a century of experience helping patients maintain quality of life. Our specially trained hospice practitioners continually adopt the latest care techniques and newest drug therapies to help patients remain pain-free, and maintain dignity and lucidity right to the end of life.
