Brevillier Village has a Comfort Care Suite in Ball Pavilion that is specifically designed for our residents who require hospice or end of life care. We contract with specialized hospice agencies that provide exceptional Erie hospice care right here at our facility.
What is Hospice Care?
The essence of hospice care is simple: to provide a level of care for those with a terminal illness to preserve their dignity without discomfort. With our pain and symptom management, Brevillier’s Erie hospice care can ensure your loved one receives the medical, emotional, and spiritual attention they need during this trying stage of life.
For those diagnosed with an incurable illness, supportive palliative care like hospice may be the best next step. It ensures a higher level of comfort for the duration of the illness.
Hospice Is For the Family As Much as the Resident
It’s important that families show their love, consideration, and support to a loved one(s) with a terminal illness. There is a certain cyclical nature to hospice care in which the resident is provided comfort, which in turn eases the emotional strain on family members and friends.
Our Compassionate Team
Brevillier has a highly-trained, compassionate staff that is here to provide you or your loved one with the hospice care you need. Our team often consisted of:
- Nurses (RNs, LPNs)
- Nursing Assistants
- Social Workers
- Chaplain and Personal Clergy
When needed, we have a Therapy Department that can offer physical, occupational, and respiratory therapy as well as speech pathology services.
A Focus on Quality
Our Erie hospice care team is here to provide quality support and comfort during this stage of life. It can be trying for both those with the incurable illness and their family. However, when there is a limited time, it’s important to focus on the quality—not the quantity——of life as opposed to the remaining quantity.
