Choosing hospice care for yourself or a loved one can be a difficult decision. Days, months or years may have been spent on curative cares to halt a disease process. But now, as you and your medical team begin to understand that curative treatments are no longer the focus, it is time to consider hospice care. With hospice, comfort, symptom control, and enhancing quality of life are the focus.
Serving patients in the Worthington, Windom and Jackson areas.
Hospice care is centered on the patient and caregivers. A physician led team of nurses, social workers, nurse aides, chaplains and volunteers work together to provide the best care possible. Sanford Hospice has been serving area patients and families for 23 years, our hospice nurses have many years of hospice experience, including symptom management and pain control.
Many hospice patients choose to remain, and receive care in their own homes, amid familiar surroundings and where everyone is most comfortable. But it this is not possible the hospice team will come to a nursing home, hospital, assisted living, or hospice cottage.
Hospice care is a Medicare benefit, Medicaid, and many private insurance companies also cover hospice care.
Sanford Hospice also offers the option of a residential hospice facility. The Sunset Cottage is located in Worthington, MN.
