    Making Everyday Count

    Each Patient Matters and Everyday Counts!

    This is the motto we live by at Sprenger Hospice. Below is a recent story illustrating the compassion we have for each of our patients.

    "Residents at Wayne Manor Assisted Living on Smithville Western Road launched message-carrying helium balloons into the air Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 and watched as they headed northeast in a nice breeze. Each of the 100 balloons launched had a message attached in hopes of a letter to Wayne Manor residents on where the balloons landed.

    It was coordinated by Life Enrichment Director Barb Rodhe and Sprenger Hospice Volunteer Coordinator Toni Rotz. 'This really was a fun event for the residents and they are very excited to hear from people who find a balloon,' Rodhe said. The event was topped off with an ice cream cone that was enjoyed by all participants and volunteers."

Frequently Asked Questions

Considering hospice can be a difficult choice. How do you know if it’s time and are you and your loved one ready? Here are a few signs/reasons that you and your loved one maybe ready for Hospice: if your doctor shares there is nothing further that can be done for your disease and gives you a prognosis of 6 months or less, if you no longer wish to seek aggressive treatment, or if you have a significant weight loss and multiple hospital trips.

Hospice services are covered under your insurance benefit. Every insurance has a Hospice Benefit that covers the care provided by the hospice team to your loved one.

One of the biggest misconceptions is that hospice is a place. Hospice is a philosophy and is provided where the patient is at. This can be personal residence, family/friends residence, assisted living and nursing facility. Our Hospice services can be provided at any location within our service area. 

Pain can be emotional, spiritual or physical and is what the patient says it is. The hospice team manages pain through collaboration with the patient’s doctor and care team to determine what medications may be effective. The team’s Social Worker and Spiritual Care Coordinator are utilized to address emotional and spiritual pain.

A social worker is available to provide support as needed. This support can consist of many different things. Your social worker is able to assist with processing feelings for acceptance of your loved ones decline, education on what to expect regarding signs and symptoms of death and dying, funeral arrangements and discussions, and facilitating a dialog between family and patient to share feelings and say good bye. Your social worker is also able to assist with Medicaid applications, VA Benefit applications, Living Wills and DPOA-H. 

Testimonials

“From the first day the Hospice nurses, Lisa and Michelle, met in my Dad’s home to discuss my mom’s hospice care, is such a precious memory. It was so heartfelt and compassionate. My Dad broke down and cried and Michelle sat beside him and placed her hand on his. She helped him make the tough decisions with dignity and understanding. Later that day, she spoke to me at Autumn Aegis about her concern over both my parents and she hugged me. She felt like family right away. I could tell she cared about my parents almost as much as I did. Sprenger Hospice set in motion everything my Mom and Dad needed for their final days…”
