78. Kelley Scott – Clarehouse - Hospice in Oklahoma

44 minutes

Kelley Scott is the Founder and Executive Director of Clarehouse, a loving home for people who are terminally ill and facing the end of life. Kelley has been a hospice nurse for over 36 years and founded Clarehouse nearly 20 years ago as a social model hospice. Nationally, she has created outcome pathways for end-of-life care in education and provides counseling and mentoring to others aspiring to provide social model hospices.

In this episode, Kelley and Robert talk about her career in end-of-life care, the process she went through to open Clarehouse, and how she tested her social hospice business model. Additionally, she shares the greatest lessons and business strategies she’s learned as a leader, and how the Clarehouse model is being adopted in other communities.

Scott also breaks down what a social model hospice is, when people are eligible for hospice care, and why it’s so important to protect the dignity of terminally ill people. She then sheds light on other innovative solutions that are being created in hospice care, such as death doulas.
