Therapy Services While in Hospice Care
Some of the individuals who receive hospice care from Stillwater Hospice require help developing new skills to perform everyday tasks. Often, this is the result of a medical condition; for example, those who have undergone a stroke may have difficulty holding a fork or other utensils. Occupational, speech-language or physical therapy may be prescribed by the medical team when it is medically necessary. The goal is to help patients complete basic tasks and maintain function.
Additional therapies may be provided to patients and caregivers by qualified volunteers on a case-by-case basis.
