Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care officially opened its new location in Milford. Seasons Hospice will have a team of local nurses that specializes in end of life care. Marcia Norman, founder, accredited the new location in Sussex County to requests from downstate residents for palliative services. Season Hospice currently serves patients and families in Kent and New Castle County in Delaware. Seasons is a community-based organization that uses “creative solutions which add to quality of life,” stated Executive Director Sharon Garrick.
Their Open Access program allows patients currently receiving medical treatments to access hospice services earlier. Described as a combination between curative and palliative care open access increases time for patients and families to engage in care planning.
Seasons also offers Music Therapy and has a Board Certified Music Therapist on staff. Seasons commits that music can help patients focus on positive experiences, increase socialization, and maintain and improve physical comfort. Mrs. Garrick describes music therapy as “being able to take the mind to another place.”
Seaons Hospice and Palliative Care will advance community awareness of the benefits of hospice care and provide support to patients and families that adds to their quality of life. Seasons Hospice is located at 556 South Dupont Boulevard next to Select Financial Group and can be reached at 302-533-3800.
