Care Team

Your hospice care team offers the care and knowledge you need to achieve comfort and peace of mind. Our teams are comprised of members with their own specialized skills and work together to customize your care, support your family, and honor you.

Your doctor and the hospice medical director, with you and your family, recommend hospice and coordinate your care.

Registered Nurses (RNs) specializing in pain and symptom management tend to you on a regular or daily basis and help ensure your comfort. A nurse is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) provide living and personal care assistance, such as bathing, eating, and grooming.

Family and Friends are welcome no matter where you are receiving your hospice care. If you choose in-home hospice care, they may also serve as your primary caregivers with support and visits from our hospice team.

Facility Caregivers provide hospice care in a skilled nursing facility or assisted living home. The home’s caregivers will provide your primary care, and ThedaCare hospice works with them.

Hospice Volunteers are specially trained to offer support and companionship to you and your family. They assist with activities like writing letters, creating scrapbooks or recordings of your memories, running errands, and giving respite to your caregivers.

Social Workers assist you and your family with emotional, financial, and other personal concerns. Your social worker can also help you and your family with community resources.

Chaplains are available to help you and your family address your spiritual preferences, no matter your faith tradition. Chaplains can also assist with memorial preparations.

Other Nurturing Caregivers available to you include music therapists, massage therapists, and pet therapy volunteers. Their special services can provide comfort, reduce anxiety, or simply brighten your day.

Bereavement Staff is available to your family and loved ones to provide support for a year following their loss.
