Hospice Services at Sierra
End-of-life issues present their own unique challenges. But when doctor, patient and family make the decision that curative treatment is no longer an option, pallative care is now necessary. Sierra’s hospice services can help make this difficult time easier for everyone.
Wherever your loved one calls home--be it his or her own place, your home, or a a skilled nursing facility--Sierra’s 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week hospice professionals work under the direction of your family member’s physician to provide the very best clinical pain and symptom management . You’d expect that.
But we know hospice is much, much more. It’s about feeling respected, having dignity, making each day count. It’s about physical, emotional, and spiritual welfare. And it’s about quality of life--for our patient and for our patient’s family. So we make the arrangements for all the services, equipment and medication needed; and since virtually all hospice services and items are covered by Medicare and/or Medicaid for qualified individuals, cost is one less thing to stress over.
If you’re part of our patient’s family, we’ll teach you what you need to know to support and care for your loved one. And of course you can call us anytime, day or night, with concerns and questions. Because we know from experience what it’s like when a loved one is terminally ill. And we’re here to provide all the compassionate emotional support you need.
