Pointe Coupee Hospice has been in operation since 2001 and offers our most experienced nursing team for pain management and symptom control. Hospice offers a team approach to manage its patient’s medical, emotional, and spiritual needs. The care is patient and family centered. Hospice believes that every person has a right to dignified and pain-free end-of-life. We work closely with our hospice physician, Dr. Ashley Bordelon, as well as your primary care or specialty physician to control pain and symptoms. Hospice offers a spiritual and volunteer component that makes it unique to other health care. Hospice also offers many of the other home health services that you are familiar with such as physical, speech & occupational therapy, and a medical social worker.
We work with patients and families with end-of-life issues offering comforting and compassionate care. Hospice is not limited to only the home but may also be provided in the nursing home and hospital.
