Even though patients and their caregivers know that hospice staff is available 24/7, the Tuck-in program was established to assure that patients and families have the supplies that they need on hand as the weekend approaches. 

Each Thursday a volunteer calls our hospice families to assure supplies and medicines are on hand before the weekend and to check on the general status of the patient and family and provide support. A report is made to the cllinical staff and actions are taken as needed.
