When choosing a hospice care provider, WHO you choose makes all the difference.
RN Model of Care – Our hospice patients and families benefit from the continuity of care they receive through consistent RN Case Management visits from one RN who is assigned to monitor their care.
Staffing Ratios – We highly value our hospice nurses and recognize that providing individualized care is made easier when caseloads remain low.
Data Supports Our Practices – Continuous analysis of data informs our hospice care decisions as we work to improve quality of care for our hospice patients.
When faced with a terminal illness, hospice offers a solution for patients with a goal of returning home and spending the time they have left surrounded by family and friends. It’s often the ideal choice for patients who no longer wish to pursue ineffective or cumbersome interventions.This family-centered, holistic approach provides pain management, emotional healing and spiritual support in the end stage of life and in the place where most of us are most comfortable, right at home.
Hospice care is a type of health care that focuses on the treatment of a terminally ill patient's pain and symptoms and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs at the end of life. Hospice care prioritizes comfort and quality of life by reducing pain and suffering.
Hospice care provides many benefits to individuals with life limiting illnesses and a life expectancy of six months or less. While this is not the only option a person has when faced with such a diagnosis, it is one that helps them to remain comfortable at home while also providing necessary support for family members and loved ones through bereavement care and counseling.
Once you or your physician contact our office, coverage for services is typically provided by Medicare, Medicaid or the Department of Veterans Affairs at 100%. Private insurance also offers a hospice benefit, but it can vary by provider. Patients should check with their individual provider for details, and Stoneridge Hospice is here to help you through this process.
