Hospice care is typically given in a patient’s home, but also may be provided in inpatient hospice facilities. Medical equipment is used to help alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life while under hospice care.
Our supplies include equipment that is necessary for providing safe and comfortable care in the patient’s home environment. Such items could include a hospital bed, wheelchair, alternating pressure mattress, over-the-bed table, oxygen concentrator, walker, cane, toilet seat riser, and shower chairs, to name a few.
Soft goods, such as bandages, adult diapers, incontinent supplies, catheter supplies, skin care lotions, dressings and would supplies, mouth care supplies, latex gloves, and so forth, are also common hospice supplies used in a home setting.
A hospice provider will generally assess your needs and recommend any equipment and hospice supplies you will need. A holistic approach will address your physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each patient within hospice care.
