GREENVILLE, S.C. – Heading into the next phase of your life with dignity that is what Wren Hospice is all about.
“Hospice is about comfort,” Wren Hospice’s Executive Director Caitlin Padgett explained. “We focus on treating the person rather than the disease. It’s comfort when you have a life-limiting illness.”
With Wren Hospice, your loved one will be cared for by a team of professionals including a nursing assistance, an aide, a spiritual caregiver, a social worker and a case manager.
“We’re going to focus on the quality of life, and the average length of stay is actually 90 days,” she explained.
Padgett said the Wren Hospice team is there for the family as well as the patient.
“We focus on the family. Hospice is not just the patient. It is the family,” she said. “We are educators, and we are a resource for you. Ultimately, we want to make you feel like you are still in control, but we’re here to educate you on the disease process and the resources that you have to make it as peaceful as possible.”
When is it time for hospice?
“Give us a phone call,” Padgett said. “We connect you with a nurse and also our community liaisons that are educators. And the thing is you might not need us. Just call us, and we can be a resource for you.”
Wren Hospice serves Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, McCormick, Newberry, Oconee, Pickens, Saluda, Spartanburg and Union counties with offices in Greer and Anderson.
