A Hospice Team You Can Trust and Count On
Hospice Medical Director
The Hospice Medical Director specializes in palliative care, which seeks to minimize pain and maximize comfort, as well as the management of illnesses and related conditions.
Registered Nurse Case Manager
Our RN Case Managers help manage pain, any other symptoms, and to teach caregivers how to care for their loved ones. An RN also ensures necessary medical supplies are ordered and assists in monitoring medications. He or she also acts as a liaison between the patient, the physician, and other healthcare professionals.
Hospice aides assist with the patient’s personal care, which may include bathing, hair or skin care, shaving, and catheter care.
As a counselor to the patient and the family, a social worker assists with financial, insurance, and legal issues while arranging volunteer support and other community services.
The chaplain or spiritual counselor offers spiritual and emotional support for patients and their families. They can also work alongside a patient’s own clergy, pastoral counselor or others for additional support.
A Bereavement Coordinator assists families during this emotionally difficult time and provides information on common aspects of grief. Bereavement support for grieving families is available for at least 12 months after the loss of a loved one.
Hospice volunteers are specially trained individuals who support the patient in a variety of ways, such as companionship, running errands, providing transportation and more. Volunteers provide respite to caregivers.

Routine Home Care
Members from the hospice team make intermittent home visits to ensure the patient’s symptoms are properly managed. They also educate and communicate with the family regarding the patient’s needs. This may include supplies, medications (relating to the patient’s terminal prognosis) and medical equipment.
General Inpatient Care
Some patients may have symptoms that cannot be managed at home while also maintaining pain control. Inpatient care is also provided in a designated center where the interdisciplinary staff can take an aggressive and individualized approach.
Continuous care is provided at home during periods of crisis to help the patient manage pain and acute medical symptoms difficult to manage.
Respite care is a supportive service that allows a patient to stay at a care center on a temporary or short-term basis. The stay could be planned or unexpected due to an emergency. Respite care is a useful tool for caregivers because it offers them a reprieve from caring for a loved one.
Hospice Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Eligible for Hospice Care?
Generally, doctors refer patients to hospice care if they are expected to pass away within six months and do not want to undergo aggressive treatments. Care can always be extended if the patient’s condition remains life-limiting. Historically, hospice care has been provided most often to cancer patients; however, hospice care is also available to patients with any illness, such as heart disease, dementia, COPD or HIV/AIDS.
When is Hospice a Good Option?
Although hospice care may include medical treatment, it does not try to delay the dying process; nor does it try to hasten death. The hospice philosophy simply recognizes that dying is a natural part of life and optimizes the quality of life for the terminally ill.
It’s a type of care that treats the whole person. Along with managing pain and other physical symptoms, patients receive emotional, spiritual, and social support from our team of specially trained professionals and volunteers. On top of this, care is not limited to the patient — family members receive information, resources and emotional support as well.
Where do you receive hospice care?
Although there are some freestanding hospice centers, hospice care is not tied to any one specific location. In fact, most hospice care is provided at home. It can also be provided in skilled nursing centers, independent or assisted living communities or even hospitals. We can serve you anywhere in Logan, Box Elder County, or Bountiful.
How often do hospice staff visit patients?
Members of the hospice staff will make regular visits to assess the patient and provide additional care. Hospice staff is on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They can answer your questions and provide support at any time of the day or night including when there is a medical emergency.
Does Medicare or Medicaid cover Primrose Hospice?
In most cases, yes. Medicare, Medicaid, and most insurance plans will cover these four types of hospice care: Routine home care, general inpatient, continuous home care, and respite care.
