ridgeway Hospice can bring care to almost anywhere the client is. They will provide care to those in assisted or independent living, at home, in inpatient care, and nursing homes. Bridgeway Hospice also provides palliative care to cope with the symptoms of stress and illness. They also have a volunteer program to help the client with errands, picking up groceries, etc. along with a grief support program to assist the client’s family and friends in coping with their loss. Lastly, they have a memory bear program in which the volunteers will create bears using the deceased patient’s clothing to preserve memories.
St. Joseph Hospice provides care in all the same places as Bridgeway. They also have their own hospice care homes. They emphasize their strong team of healthcare providers. St. Joseph Hospice doesn’t seem to have as many programs as Bridgeway to assist the families of the client. This may make Bridgeway the better option.
