CareFirst realizes that each patient brings unique needs and strengths. Where traditional hospice programs grew out of cancer care, such care plans do not necessarily apply to other diagnoses. Knowing that one size may NOT necessarily fit all, CareFirst developed hospice programs tailored to the needs of other, non-cancer patients.
These programs utilize the current best practices for disease management, medication use, symptom tracking and care giving education for each diagnosis. Using these tools, CareFirst is able to maximize functioning, minimize symptom load, avoid unwanted hospitalizations, and increase patient and family satisfaction. We work as the physicians’ ears, ears, and hands in the home, ensuring that the care plan is adhered to.
