Tabitha Hospice Team

With Tabitha Hospice, your family will be cared for by an experienced, compassionate team of nurses, social workers, home health aides and caring volunteers who provide pain management and emotional and spiritual support for clients throughout Nebraska.

With Tabitha Hospice, your family will be supported by an experienced, caring team that is second to none.

"One of the reasons I wanted to work in hospice is the amazing multi-disciplinary team. Everyone works together to ensure comfortable and dignified end-of-life journey for the patient and their family. I’m inspired by these team members."
— Dr. Kevin Reichmuth, M.D., FCCP
Tabitha Hospice Medical Director

Our medical director and associate medical directors work with physicians to develop client care plans and provide ongoing review of Tabitha Hospice care. If necessary, our medical directors can intervene to ensure your loved one receives appropriate treatment that conforms to care plans and falls within established hospice care guidelines.

The Tabitha Hospice nursing team will make scheduled visits according to individual needs. Nurses work closely with clients, families and physicians to monitor symptoms and medications, coordinate communications and serve as an educational resource. The nursing team is on-call 24/7 for consultation and emergency visits.

Emotional and spiritual support is provided by our social workers and pastoral team, as well as by a licensed mental health counselor available to assist individuals and their families. We can help clients access community resources and plan advanced directives.

Home health aides and homemaker services provide assistance with personal care and light housekeeping and can provide companionship.

Trained, caring volunteers provide assistance through companionship, listening, respite care and helping with everyday tasks. Many of our volunteers have become longtime friends of the families they serve.

Other team members may include a dietitian or physical, occupational and speech therapists.

Bereavement counseling is provided to loved ones for 18 months.
