Samaritan Hospice

"Neighbors Making a Difference"

 

Samaritan Hospice
Is a faith based, not-for-profit, striving to provide exceptional care in the final stages of life.

Our Mission
Samaritan Hospice is guided by our Christian ethics to help our rural neighbors by promoting the highest quality care near end of life.

Our Philosophy
Hospice is a philosophy, not a place, and provides hope for quality of life when aggressive medical treatment no longer offers hope for a cure. One of the goals of Hospice is to enhance an environment of the patient's choice such that both the patient and their family members have compassionate care at end-of-life, and have mental and spiritual preparation for death.

When do I qualify for Hospice?
Patients are referred to hospice when life expectancy is approximately six months or less. Hospice care can continue longer than six months if needed but requires physician certification.

What Hospice Does:

  • Provides the care you need in your home or in the facility of your choice.
  • Provides financial assistance with hospice medication and medical equipment.
  • Supports the family and the patient, spiritually and emotionally, throughout the process.
  • Helps you make the most of life.
  • Does not hasten or postpone life, but affirms life and improves quality of life.
  • Patients often improve on Hospice Care and many of Samaritan's clients have "graduated" from the program; improving so much they no longer met Hospice criteria.

Hospice is dedicated to keeping patients free of pain while allowing them to work through spiritual and emotional end of life issues.
