Brighton Bridge Hospice exists to provide and promote the highest total care possible for people with advanced terminal illnesses and to offer support to their families and other individuals important to their care.
Hospice services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurance companies.
Our team of Hospice Medical Directors work closely with an Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) to provide medical management of conditions contributing to the terminal prognosis.
Our nursing team is comprised of Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses with more than 400 years of collective experience!
Our Social Workers provide emotional support and counseling to our patients and their families. They help with processing emotions that come with the end of life; including fear, anxiety, grief, and loss.
The primary responsibility of our Hospice Chaplains is to provide emotional and spiritual counseling to patients and their families.
Our Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) team with their more than 160 years of collective experience is one of our greatest assets!
We have all felt the loneliness of grief at some point in time in our lives. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve after the loss of a loved one, most discover how to eventually move on with that process.
Volunteers are an integral part of our team. Volunteers come from all walks of life with a myriad of experiences where they are able to enhance the lives of our patients.
BRIGHTON BRIDGE HOSPICE
LOCALLY OWNED and Christian Operated while PROUDLY SERVING SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA
Brighton Bridge Hospice provides a way of compassion, for individuals and their families that are faced with a life-limiting illness. We have served Southwest Louisiana with compassionate Hospice care since 2006.
Hospice is about comfort, compassion, and support for persons and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatment. Hospice care focuses on providing comfort, relieving pain, and symptom management. Hospice also deals with the emotional, social, and spiritual impact of the illness and works to promote dignity and quality of life.
