2019 Social Care Awards

GHP / Social Care Awards 2019 5 g Hospice of the Western Reserve at the end of life nationally and globally. Together with its sister hospice, Helderberg Hospice in Somerset West, South Africa, Hospice of the Western Reserve recently received the 2018 Global Partnership Award from Global Partners in Care. The award recognizes the exceptional impact the international partnership has played in the delivery of palliative care. It is the organization’s staff that have driven it to the success it enjoys today. HWR offers the region’s largest team of certified hospice and palliative care professionals. Care is provided in private residences, nursing facilities, assisted living communities and hospitals. Three In-Patient Care Units (hospice houses) offer intensive symptom management in a homelike setting as well as care for the final days. Many nurses have earned the distinctive credential as a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse (CHPN). All physicians are Board Certified in Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and as such, they are able to offer patients the expert care they need at this vital time in their lives. As part of its drive to support staff and ensure that they are able to provide the exceptional standard of care that patients deserve, HWR’s internal culture encourages honest dialogue, respect for the feelings, values and cultures of others, teamwork and commitment to mission. A harmonious work environment is fostered by following covenants established by the founders. This culture ensures that the hospice attracts and retains the region’s best skilled hospice professionals. Currently, a comprehensive dementia initiative is underway to reach individuals earlier in the disease process to communicate their long-range healthcare choices. Through collaboration with other dementia experts and community organizations, HWR is working to explore innovative new ways to provide family caregivers with the education, support and tools they need to provide loved ones with a better quality of life. This development is one of many that will ensure that the hospice remains able to address the ever-growing need for hospice and palliative care over the years to come. By 2030, it is estimated that the number of seniors in Northern Ohio will be almost equal to the number of people under the age of 20. Longer lifespans also mean more seniors are living with chronic disease, creating a growing need for hospice and palliative care services, and as such, HWR will remain committed to providing cutting-edge hospice services and care as it looks towards a bright future.
