Complementary Care

Consistent with our mission to offer comfort with dignity to people
of any age living with a progressive life-limiting illness, and with our dedication to the caregiver,

           Pine Hospice may be able to arrange complementary care
           for the hospice client or for the caregiver
Complementary care services "complement" conventional medical and nursing care

Examples of complementary therapies practiced in our area include massage, Reiki, therapeutic touch, polarity therapy, essential oils and aromatherapy, guided imagery meditation,  Passage meditation, gentle Yoga stretches, music and art therapy, pet therapy, T'ai Chi Chih, Qi Gong, Trigger Point therapy, craniosacral therapy, reflexology, progressive physical relaxation

Additional services such as hair styling, manicures, pedicures, gardening, and photography may also be available

Complementary care services are offered without charge from a Pine Tree Hospice volunteer,

        or a referral may be made to a complementary care provider
        who may charge a fee
