All of Gilchrist Services programs offer comprehensive care and support, tailored to the individual needs of the patient or client. These services include:

  • Greater Living, which provides coordinated medical care for older individuals with serious and chronic diseases and conditions;
  • Support Our Elders, which offers individuals with advance illness and difficult to manage symptoms an extra layer of support, including home visits from a dedicated nurse practitioner for patients unable to travel;
  • Palliative Care, which offers medical, psychosocial and spiritual care for inpatients at GBMC and outpatients at the GBMC Cancer Center who suffer from serious, but not necessarily terminal illnesses, and focuses on enhancing their quality of life;
  • Transitions, which provides case management and volunteer support for seriously ill individuals who are not currently eligible for or not yet ready to accept hospice; 
  • Gilchrist Hospice Care, which offers medical, emotional, social and spiritual support as well as volunteer assistance for terminally-ill patients, including children (Gilchrist Kids), with a focus on maximizing the quality of the patient’s life through the end of life;
  • Grief & Volunteer Support, which provides volunteer assistance and companionship as well as helps caregivers and families cope with the loss of a loved one through one-on-one counseling, support groups and other offerings.

Gilchrist Services also includes the Gilchrist Global Partnership, through which Gilchrist and Nkoaranga Lutheran Hospital’s Hospice and Palliative Care program in Tanzania share information and wisdom. Gilchrist Services financially supports our partner through the generosity of our donors at home.
