What is an Interdisciplinary Team Approach?
The interdisciplinary approach utilizes a team of professionals including physicians, nurses, nurse aides, social workers, clergy, therapists, and specially trained volunteers. Our team works to meet the need of patients and their loved ones. It is our desire to assist patients and their families as they encounter the stress and concerns arising from terminal illness. Blue Mountain Hospice hopes to be a refuge along this often difficult journey. We offer support designed to nurture your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
