Hospice care is a compassionate form of care that is designed to provide treatment and comfort for those who are facing a life-limiting illness. It offers a support system of medical, social, psychological, and spiritual services that promotes dignity and affirms quality of life which allows the patient, family, and other loved ones to make choices about what is important to them.
Wexford offers 24 hour monitoring by our supportive nursing care staff and involvement in the recreational programs while the resident's family is away from home.
Telemedicine allows Wexford House residents to be evaluated – without leaving our facility – by a physician at another location. Using special audiovisual equipment, including a two-way video system, both patient and doctor can see and communicate with each other. This allows the physician to remotely diagnose and treat the patient or identify other opportunities to better manage the patient's condition.
