At Anarcare, Quality Service is our mission. To us, service means each patient is just like our family, and we make the extra effort to know our patients on a personal level.
‘At Anarcare We Care’
Our teams of companionate caregivers are what make Anarcare truly special.
Nurses compose the larger part of the visits that patients receive during hospice or Home Health care. Nurses serve as our eyes and ears in the field and report their findings to the physicians. Their duties include monitoring changes in patients’ condition, medication review, pain & symptom management, caregiver/family teaching, and ensuring that patient & family needs are met.
Our Medical Director is a board certified physician. She has been practicing medicine for over 20 years. Her experience and multidisciplinary approach to health care have allowed her team to render cost-effective and compassionate care for all her patients.
Home Health Aides provide support with the personal care of patients. The care provided focuses on overall hygiene and assistance with activities such as bathing, shaving, dressing, feeding, walking, etc.
Social workers provide assistance through counselling and focus on emotional or psychological support. They may assist by explaining insurance benefits, facility placement, advanced directives, end of life planning, funeral arrangements, assist with bereavement & grief support and providing other community resources.
Chaplain or Spiritual Counsellors
Spiritual Counsellors provide spiritual and emotional support to patients and families members. They ensure that patients have the spiritual support that they need and often they provide a bridge between the patients and the religious communities.
Bereavement Counsellor help people cope with grief and mourning following the death of loved ones. They feel that everyone experiences and expresses grief in their own way and thus one can expect a wide range of emotion and behaviour associated with grief.
Volunteers assist patients and family members by providing companionship to patients, and may provide assistance in instances where the family may need a brief respite to run errands or tend to other appointments.
