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 one's 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 goodbye. Your social worker is also able to assist with Medicaid applications, VA Benefit applications, Living Wills and DPOA-HC.
"The first day the Hospice nurses 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 the nurse 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 Sprenger Health Care 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 Care set in motion everything my Mom and Dad needed for their final days.”
