The Oasis staff/team provided the most outstanding care to my father-in-law. The Administrator, Sade impressed us when she came to the home to give us an overview of the agency. She explained the program to us leaving us with a "warm" , safe and comfortable feeling that our father would be in good hands. His nurse Lois was kind, understanding and professional while managing and assessing his care. Blessing, his hospice aide was truly a "Blessing" she provided his daily living needs with tender loving care which my husband and I were grateful of.

I have had occasion to see the Oasis teams work in the lives of two of my family members, and I will only say that these are very special people . They exhibit the love of Christ in every way when they care for their patients. If you ever need a hospice service, use Oasis. This is simply the best hospice service I have ever seen. All my family felt that the decision to use Oasis was the best thing we could possibly have done for our loved ones.

I have now seen this company give the most excellent care to 2 good friends parents. I cannot begin to communicate how the compassion and love of Christ has surrounded these families during one of the most difficult times and way of loss through death of a loved one. Each team member is top notch professional without losing any of the caring, kindness and skill needed to tend to the physical, emotional, and spiritual outreach in each circumstance. May God continued to be glorified through this company.

Oasis hospice is literally that, an Oasis. Hospice is a sensitive topic and Oasis understands this fully. They take on the patient but also service the entire family. A true example of what it is to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I recommend Oasis Hospice services to anyone looking for their terminally ill family member to be treated with the upmost of care, compassion, quality and dignity while providing excellent Medical, nursing, CNA, music, bereavement and social services.

My family used Oasis when my grandma was in her final stage of life, and they were wonderful to deal with. Many times when I would go to visit my grandma, the Ellis' were in her room ministering to her and praying with her. She would always look forward to their visits, as they would also sing with her. She really enjoyed that. After she passed, they told me that if I ever needed someone to talk with about my grief process, I could just give them a call. This shows that Oasis cares about the extended family and doesn't stop their care once a patient passes. They truly show the love of Christ to the patient and their extended family.

FAQ

What services does hospice provide?

Hospice provides an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals:

• Physician: The primary care physician remains an important part of the patient’s care. With their input, the hospice medical director and the hospice team will coordinate care.
• Nursing: The registered nurse case manager is responsible for assessing and managing a patient’s care.
• Social Work: The hospice social worker has in-depth knowledge and expertise in ethnic, cultural and economic diversity; including liaising with family and support networks.
• Spiritual Support: The hospice chaplain is available to provide counsel and spiritual support for our patients and their families. They are able to request the assistance of all faith clergies to meet the unique needs of a patient and their family.
• Music Therapy: Using music to professionally address physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs, music therapy can be used to attend to goals for the hospice patient in a non-threatening manner. Such hospice specific goals can be to alleviate pain, decrease anxiety, enhance memory and encourage self-expression.
• Hospice Aide: Hospice aides provide personal care under the direction of a registered nurse. Care includes assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, hair and mouth care.
• Additional Team members are Dietitians, Pharmacists, Volunteers, Physical, Speech and Occupational therapists.

How is hospice different from other medical care?

• Hospice provides a holistic approach to meet all the patient’s and family’s needs. A coordinated team of hospice professionals, assisted by volunteers, work to meet the patient’s and family’s emotional and spiritual needs, as well as the patient’s physical needs.
• The emphasis is on symptom management and on emotional and spiritual support tailored to the needs of the patient and family.
• Hospice recognizes that a serious illness affects the entire family as well as the person who is ill. The family, not just the patient, is the “unit of care” for hospice professionals.

Who pays for hospice care?

Hospice is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, with few out of pocket costs to the patient.

The Medicare hospice benefit covers costs related to the terminal illness, including the services of the hospice team, medication, medical equipment and supplies.

Medications: The Medicare hospice benefit covers medications needed to treat the patient’s terminal illness are not covered by the hospice benefit.

Medical supplies: The physician and nurse will work with the family to determine which medical supplies and equipment the patient needs.

When should patients and families consider hospice?

Hospice care is available at any stage during the illness once a terminal diagnosis is received. At the point when the medical goal changes from cure to comfort, it is time to call Oasis Hospice for a consultation. We will work and walk compassionately with our patients and their families on the journey.

Who is eligible for hospice care?

A physician must certify that a hospice patient has a terminal illness and an estimated life expectancy of six months or less if the illness runs its usual course without aggressive treatment. The patient must agree to hospice care. Generally, most hospice providers accept everyone who meets those criteria, regardless of the patient’s financial situation or insurance coverage.

Doesn’t accepting hospice care mean giving up?

Hospice involves acknowledging that most diseases in their advanced form cannot be cured. It does not mean giving up. The focus of hospice is toward helping the patient achieve maximum physical comfort and peace of mind.

What if I choose hospice and then live more than six months?

Hospice care does not automatically end after six months. Medicare and most other insurers will continue to pay for hospice care as long as a physician certified that the patient continues to have a limited life expectancy.

What if my condition improves?

Occasionally, the quality of care provided by hospice leads to substantially improved health, and life expectancy exceeds six months. When this happens, the hospice provider may transfer care to a non-hospice care provider like home health. Later, when patients become eligible for hospice, they can re-elect the hospice benefit. There is no penalty for getting better!
