Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care at the
end-of-life, Arcadia Hospice involves a team-oriented approach to
expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual
support expressly tailored to the patient's needs and wishes. Support is
extended to the patient's loved ones, as well. At the center of
Arcadia Hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die
pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the
necessary support to allow us to do so. The focus is on caring, not
curing and, in most cases, care is provided in the patient's home.
Arcadia Hospice also provides care in freestanding hospice facilities,
hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
Arcadia Hospice's services are available to patients of any age,
religion, race, or illness.
Core values are at the HEART of all that we do. We
must always measure what we do against the values
we hold dear to our organization.
These values are:
We behave in an honest way so that those most vulnerable
in our care can trust what we say and
do. Physicians, families and patients as well as the
community expect us to have the utmost integrity
founded on honesty.
Honesty is tempered with empathy. Our patients
deserve to have their stories heard with a
compassionate ear so they feel cared
for as individuals.
In order to be held up as experts in end-of-life care,
we maintain a high degree of competence in our
skills as caregivers. We must also be good stewards
of the resources we have and of the donations
that are so generously given to Arcadia
by our community.
All care is based upon the respect we hold for human
life not only of our patients and families but also of
each other. We value the individual and interact with
others in a courteous and loving manner because each
human life matters.
Without trust all else fails. We behave in an honest,
consistent, competent manner so that all who come in
contact with us can rely on the care we provide.
