Relief and Comfort for Our Patients
Our agencies offer a multiplicity of services & programs in Tennessee & Mississippi, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We employ over 190 employees and the census combined averages approximately 1500 patients and 150 admissions monthly. We are faith-driven, compassionate and excellence is an uncompromising principle.
We Honor Veterans
The We Honor Veterans program focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment. Goshen Hospice is proud to be recognized by the Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization as a We Honor Veterans Level 5 Partner, the highest level of distinction.
Pinning ceremonies are officiated by a veteran or active duty service member. At these intimate ceremonies which are conducted at the bedside, the veteran honors the patient’s military service. These events bring together family and friends to celebrate what is often the last time these individuals are publicly thanked for their service.
We offer a variety of free therapies to provide pain relief to veterans. These include: physical therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy, Reiki, and pet visits.
Veteran to Veteran
This program pairs volunteers who are veterans with hospice patients who also served in the United States Armed Forces. During one-on-one visits, stories are shared about military life – both accomplishments and challenges. It is through this camaraderie, that emotional healing is facilitated.
Culturally Sensitive Care
Bi-lingual employees are trained to work with patients and families to developed tailored care plans. Cultural competency is part of individualized patient care, which demonstrates respect for a patient's healthcare beliefs and acknowledges that these beliefs play a role in effective healthcare delivery. In addition, cultural competency demonstrates our understanding that illness occurs in a biopsychosocial context in response to health beliefs and practices. As the patient receives care, our healthcare providers (HCPs) examine their own cultural values and beliefs and ensure they do not interfere with care. Part of cultural competency is acknowledging one's own biases before providing care.
Grief is a deeply personal and complex experience. Some of the characteristic reactions to loss are anger, sadness, guilt, depression, heartbreak, difficulty concentrating, and lethargy. The passing of time eases the pain, but time alone may not be enough.
Everyone grieves differently, even when experiencing the same loss. Although we can’t tell you exactly what your grief journey will look like, we can assure you that the journey is easier when you have company and comfort along the way.
Our grief counselors and trained volunteers are available to support people of all ages (children and adults) through serious illness and bereavement and help them regain hope. We provide comfort and education about grief, as well as proven tips and coping strategies.
