About Clarity Hospice
Clarity Hospice was established to provide home/residential facility care for patients with life-limiting illnesses who choose comfort care, rather than curative measures. The staff of Clarity Hospice strives to meet patients’ physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs as well as the needs of their families. Their major focus is pain control and symptom management, with 24-hour availability of the hospice team of nurses, aides, chaplains, social workers, volunteer and bereavement coordinators, and medical directors.
Hospice affirms life and focuses on the quality of life. Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of incurable illnesses so that they might live as fully and comfortably as possible. Hospice recognizes dying as a normal process whether or not resulting from disease. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care and the support of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.
What is Hospice?
Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the person’s needs and wishes. Support is provided to the person’s loved ones as well. The focus of hospice relies on the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our loved ones will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.
- Hospice focuses on caring, not curing and, in most cases; care is provided in the person’s home.
- Hospice care also is provided in freestanding hospice centers, hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
- Hospice services are available to patients of any age, religion, race, or illness.
- Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medicaid, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations.
Clarity Hospice was established to provide home care for patients with life-limiting illnesses. Our goal is to help meet patients’ physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs as well as the needs of their families.
Clarity Hospice of Baton Rouge — Our Story
Trust – it takes a long time to create and a moment to harm. Those of us who have dedicated our lives to healthcare have spent many hours caring for the peopole God has put in our path – and doing it from the heart. We have all seen companies that concentrate more on the bottom line than the patients who they serve.
Hospice care is a wonderful service that far too few people know about and even fewer use to its full benefit. After the excessive costs of medical treatment, many families cannot bear the burden of another medical expense and forego hospice care.
Clarity Hospice was started with the heart of a nurse. Our owner intentionally set up the company to emphasize treatment plans and company decisions based on the patient’s needs and the needs of the family surrounding the patient. At Clarity, we have built a team of caring and dedicated people who give themselves to providing the best in hospice care.
