Hospice

Jewish Hospice Services

Through our Jewish Hospice Services, we strive to honor the cultural values of our Jewish patients and their family members by serving patients with respect and compassion, offering comfort to loved ones.

Studies have shown that culturally sensitive health care has tremendous positive impact on patient satisfaction, as well as treatment adherence and outcomes.

The AccentCare Jewish Hospice Service team understands there are many levels of religious observance. Through Kavod HaNefesh (Honor of the Soul), we strive to honor the cultural values of our Jewish patients and their family members. Each member of our care team has received training and education about the practices, laws, traditions, and values of Judaism in order to provide end-of-life care that respects and adheres to Jewish religious practices and legal requirements.

Our Hospice Service pathway assures patients and their families may include their rabbi in the decision-making processes. When requested, the AccentCare spiritual care team, which includes rabbis, is available to serve as a member of the care team.

We also provide support and assistance with funeral planning, working with a variety of funeral homes and Chevra Kadisha when requested. In addition, AccentCare offers bereavement services to help family members cope with the loss of their loved one.

Holocaust Survivor Care

Holocaust survivors and their loved ones have unique spiritual, cultural, and psychosocial needs. Our clinicians and care teams are educated and sensitive to survivor traumas that may resurface during the end-of-life transition. AccentCare caregivers also recognize the unique bonds between the generations in many Holocaust families.
