A sister service to Mercy Medical Center Redding Hospice, St. Elizabeth Hospice provides physical, emotional, and spiritual help in the supportive surroundings of the patient’s own home, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. What is hospice? Hospice care focuses on the patient rather than the disease, and highlights quality rather than length of life. It affirms life and does not hasten nor postpone death. St. Elizabeth Hospice nurses help their patients to continue an alert, pain-free life and to manage other symptoms so that their last days may be spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by their loved ones. Hospice care can be given in the patient’s home, a hospital, nursing home, or private hospice facility, but in the United States most hospice care is given in the home, with a family members serving as the main hands- on caregiver. When should you ask for hospice help? When patients can no longer benefit from curative treatment and life expectancy is estimated to be about six months depending on disease process and other variables, the patient, their family, and the doctor decide together when hospice services should begin. Hospice is sometimes not started soon enough because the doctor, patient, or family member feels it sends a message of no hope. This is not true. There are patients who “graduate” from hospice when their condition improves or the disease goes into remission, or the patient chooses to return to active treatment. Hospice care may be resumed at a later time. St. Elizabeth Hospice Services are here for you and your family whenever you might need us. We are just a phone call away.
