Hospice

When hospice care is needed, many residents who live in assisted living centers are transferred to other facilities where their needs can be met.  Potomac Seniors Village is proud to provide hospice care services. By combining the two health care programs in one facility, the community has many advantages which allow residents to age in place undisturbed. One advantage is that residents do not have to change the physical location of their home. Often it is difficult for residents to transition from one facility to another. If the two services are being offered in the same facility, residents can stay in their room. Potomac Seniors Village provides hospice services to residents without changing their room. Residents feel like they are in their own home and can take advantage of both programs.

Often residents move back and forth between both programs as well. For example, a resident may begin in the assisted living program, but become ill and begin utilizing the hospice care services. Many times residents recover from their illness and then begin using the assisted living program. Potomac Seniors Village understands that illnesses are unpredictable. Residents who experience frequent and rapid changes in health conditions have the flexibility to move back and forth between the services provided by both programs.

Potomac Seniors Village’s hospice care services include collaboration with the family and hospice team in developing a care plan for the resident that meets their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. The plan is tailored towards managing pain and controlling symptoms. Third parties, such as interdisciplinary hospice teams, may provide medical supplies and equipment needed for hospice care services. However, Potomac Seniors Village provides the environment and calm atmosphere which allows residents to feel like they are at home.
