Hospice and hospice caregivers in Brewer, Maine work closely in collaboration with the compassionate staff at Brookings-Smith in order to provide a continuum of care bridging the gap between the time of death and bereavement. For this reason Brookings-Smith has become an integral part of hospice care. The Remembrance Planner professionals at Brookings-Smith appreciate the trust that families and hospice caregivers place in them and they constantly strive to be deserving of that trust. At no time will family members be without support. The strong attachments and trust developed in one supportive environment (hospice) are shared and transferred to another (the funeral home) as the family moves through the process of dying, death and bereavement.

With greater understanding of each other’s care, areas of expertise and resources, the hospice care team and funeral home collaboration allows them both to plan a course which makes for a more natural transition of care at the time of death and in caring for the survivors in the months following the death.

When you consider the philosophy of hospice and funeral service, it is clear why the continuum of care provided by the professional staff of Brookings-Smith is a "natural extension" of hospice care in Brewer, Maine.
