Caris Healthcare created Caris Transitions to streamline communication and ensure patients receive hospice services when appropriate.
We recognize a call to Caris is a call for help. If we receive a referral from a physician and the patient is not eligible or ready for hospice services, we continue to be a resource for the patient and family through Caris Transitions.
Caris Healthcare checks in with Caris Transitions patients based on patient and family preference. We communicate patient and family decisions with the referring physician to keep everyone informed.
Caris Transitions benefits patients and families.
- Speaking with hospice professionals routinely prepares patients and families for making informed end-of-life decisions.
- Creating a relationship with patients and families allows them to become comfortable with our team and our services, enhancing their hospice experience when services begin.
- Checking in on patients with a terminal diagnosis reduces emergent situations.
It’s never too early to plan for end-of-life care or learn about the full benefits of hospice.
