At Hospice of Cincinnati, we believe that every person – regardless of financial status, background, physical characteristics or personal beliefs – should have access to the best possible and most meaningful end-of-life experience. We also believe that a greater knowledge of cultures, religions and ethnicities helps our caregivers better understand and care for patients and their families. People carry with them cultures, customs and values that affect the way they want to communicate and receive care.
At HOC, we also believe that diversity encompasses more than race and gender. It is a variety of characteristics, visible or not, that distinguish one person from another. These characteristics include, but are not limited to, age, culture, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, race and physical ability. We have focused on developing the cultural competency of our care teams, and have a staff-led Diversity Advisory Committee at HOC to challenge us to do better through training and awareness.
Cultural awareness training includes knowledge and interpersonal skills that allow your care team to understand, appreciate and support people from cultures other than their own.
Our commitment to serving diverse populations is demonstrated by our presence in communities that historically have been underserved by hospice providers. Hospice of Cincinnati will turn no one away for lack of ability to pay. This dedication is part of who we are and what we stand for as compassionate, knowledgeable caregivers and professionals.
