Hospice-Release

GENESEO, N.Y., Jan. 17, 2024 – For the fifth consecutive year, the Livingston County Hospice program has been recognized for its outstanding service and commitment of its caregivers after being awarded with the Hospice Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Award for Distinction by Wellsky.

 

A technology company with the mission to support high-quality providers, community organizations and payers with superior solutions that improve outcomes through efficiency, intelligence and connection, Wellsky recognizes the top care providers throughout the Country annually based on survey results, capabilities and experience.   

 

“The work being done by our care givers and hospice staff is second to none,” said Jennifer Rodriguez, Livingston County’s Public Health Director.  “Their tireless commitment to patients and their families is remarkable and part of what makes the County’s hospice program valuable to our residents.   I’d like to thank the Board of Supervisors for their continued vision of excellence for this critical community resource and look forward to providing the highest levels of care.”

 

Agencies selected for recognition are industry leaders that have excelled in one of the most important measures of an agency’s quality program – caregiver experience.  One of the premier programs in the region and beyond, Livingston County Hospice placed within Wellsky’s top 25 percent based on survey responses.   

 

Hospice is a unique program aimed at supporting anyone with a life-limiting illness who could benefit from additional support through their end-of-life journey. Hospice services are offered in nursing facilities, comfort care homes, local hospitals and even in patients’ homes. The Livingston County Hospice program is dedicated to providing comfort and improving quality of life, in addition to offering support to both the patient and their family. The end of a life is a unique journey, one that requires a practiced blend of compassion and comfort that Livingston County Hospice is proud to offer. 

Patients are eligible for Hospice care when the focus of care changes from aggressive treatments to comfort measures and management of symptoms.  Talk to your doctor about the benefits of Hospice care.   Admission to Hospice is based on need, meaning services are never denied because of inability to pay.

 

This year, Livingston County Hospice, the County’s exclusive provider of hospice services, will serve and guide more than 180 families through the final phase of life. For more information on hospice care, please call (585) 243-7290 or visit Livingston County Hospice’s website.
