In addition to expert medical assistance, Tidelands Hospice offers a wide range of support services.
Emotional support is provided by our team of dedicated social workers. Their purpose is to educate families about patient care and to encourage realistic expectations and confidence around numerous complicated end-of-life issues. Our social workers also act as liaisons between families and a wide variety of relevant community resources.
Spiritual support is available for those confronting the hopes, uncertainties and fears that typically accompany the end of this physical journey. At Tidelands Hospice, these delicate issues can be shared and explored openly. Our non-judgmental staff is prepared to address each patient's individual spiritual interests and the needs of their loved ones.
Additional practical support is provided by our hospice aides. Whether bathing patients, assisting with routine family activities or providing timely respite for fatigued caregivers, our aides play key roles in the hospice experience.
Tidelands Community Hospice provides bereavement support services for surviving family members for up to 13 months after their loved ones die.
No loss is greater than the loss of a loved one, and grief is an intense, complex journey that can be experienced in many ways. Tidelands remains nearby to help guide individuals and families through the healing process.
When requested, our staff schedules follow-up contact and visits with primary caregivers. Supportive correspondence is provided quarterly throughout the first year of their grief. Support groups are available at various locations in our service area and nearby churches to help survivors move successfully through their grief.
Volunteerism is alive and well at Tidelands Community Hospice. Our volunteer family continues to grow and expand their talents. Learn more...
