Cardiac Focused Care

At Ohio’s Hospice, we have a program designed to specifically care for you or your loved one’s cardiac disease. We continue to maintain best practices and collaborate with your specialist to support your symptoms, based on your disease progression and individual goals.

Focused CareTM is a specialized program available from our care team. It addresses the disease-specific needs of our patients.

Working with your medical providers, our multidisciplinary team closely monitors your status and quickly responds to adverse symptoms as they occur.

The goals of Focused Care include:

  • Provide relief from symptom burden.
  • Design a plan of care that is tailored to you in collaboration with your or your loved one’s medical team.
  • Improve quality of life with expert symptom management.
  • Avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

Focused Care services are provided as part of the Medicare hospice benefit at no additional cost to you.

Respiratory Therapists

We have full time respiratory therapists across the state serving our patients. They are available for consultation for any respiratory challenges and assist with the respiratory needs of our patients who have heart failure.

Advanced Cardiac Care Program

Our Focused Care team has worked directly with the National Partnership for Healthcare and Hospice Innovation (NPHI), in collaboration with the American Heart Association (AHA), to provide the Advanced Cardiac Care Program Patient and Caregiver Handbook.

These relationships allow us to interface with other hospice and palliative care programs on a national level to promote best-practices, consistency in care, and increased access to hospice and palliative care for these populations.
