OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
Open Arms Hospice program works diligently to assist our patients in managing diagnosis-related symptoms to have the utmost dignified process of living their remaining days with peace and comfort at their place of residence, where the family legacy can be passed onto the next generation.
At Open Arms Hospice we are committed to enable and facilitate the best quality of life, which allows patients to remain in the comfort of their own homes or at their present place of residence. In order to sustain our target to be the best hospice care in Oakland county we have handpicked all our clinicians in order to deliver compassionate and dignity driven care to our patients.
Our care aims to capture, body, mind, and spirit of the patient and the immediate family. Open Arms Hospice has a team of professionals, comprised of nurses, home health aides, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers. We thrive to provide the patient with all of the physician’s prescribed medication to address symptoms related to the end of life diagnosis. Under the direction of the patient’s physician and our medical director, the team follows a personalized plan of physical, emotional and spiritual care. The plan is continually reviewed and adapted to meet the patients’ changing needs.
