At Rincon, the doctor is most definitely in! Rincon del Rio will have on-site, on staff physicians, nurses, and other medical service providers. Visits can be in your home or in the office.
Our focus is:
- Doctor – Patient Relationship
- Patient Centeredness
- Honest and Caring Communication
- Preventative Services
- Sense of Responsibility
- Medical Expertise
Our goal is a medical staff that is taught to care as well as cure. They will allocate sufficient time, provide after-visit summaries, and generally respect the residents who use their services. If needed, there is Palliative Care and Hospice. These services reduce both the physical pain and emotional suffering caused by the symptoms of advanced illness.
The key is anticipating, preventing, and relieving suffering regardless of the stage of disease. As with all things Rincon del Rio, the nucleus is enhancing quality of life by providing the right care at the right time. Although Rincon del Rio has a Hospice Residence, please consider that Hospice is not necessarily a physical place – it is a service that comes to wherever you are living.
Because everyone’s situation will be different, there will be a specific, personalized plan tailored to changing needs when and if needed.
