Hospice Care, also referred to as palliative care, aims to improve quality of life and the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs for families of residents living with a serious illness. We collaborate with many different Hospice agencies to provide a variety of choices.
Scalabrini Villa provides specialized palliative care and end of life services affording comfort and support to residents who are no longer seeking active treatment and have a life expectancy of months or weeks.
The focus of the Hospice team and the Villa staff is the physical and emotional support to both the resident and their family members. Members of your hospice team at Scalabrini Villa may include physicians, a hospice doctor or medical director, skilled nurses, home health aides, social workers, mental health providers, trained volunteers, clergy and with special authorization could include: physical, occupational and speech therapists.
Scalabrini Villa has a long history of serving our residents and their family members with hospice services.
