What can Covenant Care Hospice do to ease my loved one’s physical pain and symptoms?
At Covenant Care Hospice, our residents have the right to effective pain and symptom control, so we make every effort to ease suffering and distress. Our team views each resident individually when dealing with pain control, so we are sensitive to the resident’s cultural, religious and spiritual preferences. We also recognize that residents may wish to try alternate therapies such as massage and calming music, so we welcome residents and their loved ones to speak with our staff about their needs.
