Palliative Care/Hospice

Quality Health of North Port offers a multi-disciplinary palliative program for residents who have opted for comfort care.  Hospice is not a place, but rather concept of care.  Hospice Care is a family-centered team approach that includes a doctor, nurse, social worker, counselor, chaplain, home health aide and trained volunteers.  We all work together focusing on the person’s needs – physical, psychological, social and spiritual. The goal is to keep the person as pain and symptom-free as possible while offering spiritual and supportive counseling to the resident and family members.  We work with several hospices in the North Port area who come to our facility to assist us with the care of our residents.
