The Crossing Hospice Care
Compassionate Hospice Care
As one of the leading health and hospice organizations in the Arizona and Nevada, our compassionate team of medical professionals and caregivers provide advanced symptom control, comfort, and improved quality of life in Phoenix AZ and Las Vegas NV.
Our staff strives to create an inclusive environment of kindness and dignity that will improve the quality of life for patients with a terminal illness and their entire family through physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support.
What are Hospice Services?
Hospice is designed to be the cornerstone of support for you and your family during this deeply emotional and challenging time. Hospice providers are available 24/7 to keep symptoms under control so patients with an advanced, life-limiting illness can experience the final stage of life in the comfort of friends and family without focusing on the pain. That’s the promise of hospice care, and that’s the promise of THEMA Health Services AZ.
Your care plan will involve you, your family, your doctor, primary providers, and any other health care provider and caregivers to ensure that your entire medical, spiritual, and emotional support network is on the same page regarding your end-of-life wishes. As one of the leading hospice organizations in the Southwest, our hospice in Phoenix is professional and features a full range of services. THEMA Health Services compassionate staff consists of nurse practitioners, registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers who are committed to the same goal: Comfortable and compassionate symptom management and end-of-life care for patients in Arizona and Nevada.
Benefits of THEMA’s Care:
- Flexible & Personalized – Our hospice team brings everything you need to your home, wherever you call home, tailored to your needs or the needs of your loved one. Compassionate care, support, resources, and providers are available 24/7 to ensure you or a loved one lives well during the last stage of life.
- Pain-Free End of Life – Living with pain unnecessarily robs people of quality of life, especially during the final stages of a terminal illness. One of the primary goals of hospice care is pain and symptom management to support more personal aspects of this life stage, such as reflecting on one’s life, focusing on relationships in a deep and intentional way, and achieving a sense of closure with loved ones.
- Support for Loved Ones – Hospice is as much about supporting immediate family members as it is about supporting patients in the final stage of life. To that end, our hospice care team includes social workers who help coordinate the complicated legal and financial end-of-life processes and counselors who help loved ones during this difficult time.
Is a Hospice Care Program Right for You or a Loved One?
Hospice services address the needs and comfort of the patient during the last stages of an illness, not just the last hours, days, or weeks of life. As such, it’s recommended to consider hospice care when you or a loved one learns that the illness is incurable and a physician certifies that, if the illness progresses on a normal course, life expectancy would be six months or less.
Our hospice serves patients of all ages who have a variety of life-limiting conditions, including but not limited to:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Heart and liver diseases
- ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
- Parkinson’s disease
