Auburn Crest Services

Knowledgeable and Caring Staff/ 24 hours a day
The Auburn Crest Hospice Team will coordinate any individualized services or therapies needed, when they are needed most. Once the Hospice Team has been engaged, patients and families are never alone. Our nurses provide emergency on-call assistance 24-hours a day, every day of the year.

They coordinate the provision of medical equipment, supplies and medications, communicate with attending physicians and are “on call” 24 hours a day, seven days a week for patients and families.
  • Certified Nurse Aides / Home Health Aides under the supervision of the Hospice Nurse, provide patients with personal care and assistance with the activities of daily living.
  • Social Workers assist families in identifying their personal and community resources and developing support networks to aid in coping with a life-limiting illness.
  • Trained Volunteers offer assistance with the activities of daily living and friendly support, companionship and encouragement to patients and family members.
  • Spiritual Care Coordinators which may include clergy, offer emotional and spiritual support, along with bereavement services to family members throughout the first year after loss.
