Meet Mike: A Day in the Life of a Hospice Nurse

It’s 5 p.m. and Mike is off to work for the day. Mike is a night nurse and part of the intake process for Premier Hospice Indiana, educating patients and their families on hospice services: counseling, medical services, and postmortem care. “It’s an important job because people often don’t like the word hospice,” says Mike. “I  tell people that hospice care isn’t like hospitals. It’s not about curing the ailments that patients have but bettering their livelihood while they have them so that way they stay comfortable and content.” Premier Hospice creates comfort kits for the patients. The “comfort kit”…

A Note from a Patient

The last weeks have passed in a blur. However, one fact remains, Premier Hospice was a blessing to my little momma and to me.

Looking back at our steps together, it’s easy to see God’s mercy and grace orchestrating our journey. You have all touched my heart, humbled my soul, and showed me God’s light working. All my love and prayers always…

Premier “Volunteer Spotlight”

Name: Vince Punzo Occupation: Professor of Psychology at Earlham College Hometown: St. Louis, MO Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy running, reading and am a big baseball fan. My favorite team is the Chicago Cubs and I’ve seen a baseball game at over 35 different Major League stadiums. What made you interested in hospice volunteering? I started teaching a class on death and dying at Earlham College. I realized that being a hospice volunteer would allow me to better understand the philosophy and practice of hospice care and then I could pass that knowledge along to my students.

Premier Hospice Music Therapy

“Still Music Within” written by one of our talented Music Therapists… In his last month of life, *Bob became very anxious, sensitive to touch, and began to withdraw. His ability to interact was diminishing. One day when I arrived, his eyes were half closed and drool was being tenderly wiped off his lips by one of his concerned daughters. With my guitar in front of him, I began to sing his anthems. After a few minutes, he lifted up his hand ever so slightly and began knocking his knuckle on the guitar in time with the music, and then occasionally…

Premier: A Better Care

“As a caregiver, my mother-in-law has had experience with two other Hospice companies. She could not believe the difference in the care Premier provided over what she had seen previously. I know that the family was satisfied and appreciative of all of the support. They always had great things to say about Jessica and Tonia and the care they provided.” Again, another instance of just doing what we do on a daily basis. Thank you to all who cared for “Uncle T”.
