At Galena Nursing Center, we consider it an honor to support our residents and their families during all stages of life, including the end-of-life journey. Our compassionate and well-trained team is here to assist you and your loved ones during this challenging time. We partner with the best hospice and palliative care providers in Galena to create a circle of support around the entire family.
We understand that this time can be emotionally taxing for everyone involved. However, it can also be a time of reflection, retelling life stories, and recalling moments of joy and laughter. We have found that creating these types of opportunities can be cathartic and healing for all: residents, loved ones, and staff.
Support on All Levels
In addition to orchestrating expert care and pain management, we offer sensitive emotional and spiritual support. Based on the resident’s wishes and capabilities, we provide social opportunities. Our team is experienced in assisting residents and loved ones through the grieving process. We can also offer referrals to grief support entities for family members.
In support of our families, we often help navigate the applicable Medicare benefits. If it is needed and desired, our staff can coordinate outside palliative and hospice services. Please do not hesitate to express your needs, and know that we are here for you.
