Our Response to Current and Future Families

 

Responding to COVID-19

Although some of our traditional visit structure has shifted from in-person to telehealth and virtual visits, Trellis Supportive Care continues to provide supportive hospice and palliative care – safely and with compassion - to nearly 580 patients every day.

In early March we formed a COVID Response Team (CRT) that continues to meet frequently to monitor the ever-changing landscape of this COVID-19 pandemic. Our primary focus remains the safety of our patients, families, and staff.

While Infection Control has always been an area of experties, the COVID-19 outbreak challenged our agency and healthcare agencies across the globe. With proactive measures to provide education, PPE, and daily updates to our clinical teams, we have been able to care for our existing patients and families as well as new patients.

Because this pandemic has left many feeling vulnerable and isolated, we have also encouraged families to reach out for support – be it for hospice care, palliative care, grief support, advance care planning, or the supportive resources we’ve assemble to simply help children and families cope with anxiety and other emotions that have impacted so many of us during this time.
