Delivering Comfort Care Where It’s Needed Most
When the doctor recommends hospice care for someone you love, it’s important to surround yourself with as much support and as many resources as possible. At Superior Home Health and Hospice, we provide a full team of skilled, experienced professionals to walk alongside families during challenging end-of-life transitions.
How Can In-Home Hospice Care Help?
Our dedicated hospice and palliative care staff provide holistic care for a range of physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. We offer a patient- and family-centered approach to end-of-life care that allows for maximum comfort for the person receiving care and support for their loved ones.
Led by our hospice medical director, each person’s care team includes a registered nurse, hospice aide, medical social worker, spiritual counselor, bereavement counselor, and hospice volunteers. We’re here for you around the clock to ensure your needs are fully met.
Services are highly customized based on individual needs and wishes, but can include any or all of the following types of assistance:
- Medication management for pain relief and symptom control
- Medical equipment and supplies
- Emotional and spiritual counseling and support
- Respite care for family members
- And more
When Is the Right Time for Hospice Care?
A doctor will recommend hospice care when someone’s life expectancy is determined to be six months or less, but this recommendation can be extended as often as needed. Although many patients and families want to wait as long as possible before initiating hospice services, it’s always best to get started as soon as possible. This allows our team to get to know the individual and their loved ones, and to offer maximum support and comfort when it’s most needed.
Who Pays for End-of-Life Care?
Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance fully cover all services.
