I. We don’t hasten the death process.
We provide extra eyes and ears to do assessments every week to see if there is any changes in health.
Before entering hospice, patients may be lucky to a full assessment every 8-10 weeks with their primary care physicians. Our patients get a full assessment each week to observe any changes of condition.
At Sage Hospice,
- We do not ignore symptoms.
- We treat infections.
- We do not want to shorten a patient’s lifespan.
We want your loved one to live in comfort and dignity with their family while natural causes take place.
II. Your loved one is never “stuck on hospice.”
If 3-4 months from now, health improves and hospice care is no longer needed, you can call us and let us know. We’ll stop our visitation and treatment schedule. Also, if health changes again, you can make another call and we will restart hospice care.
We celebrate this beautiful reality! If a patient is no longer in need of hospice care, we feel great knowing that our team’s supervision and support played an instrumental role in your loved one getting better.
III. Medicare covers 100% of hospice services.
There are no deductibles and no copays. We accept Medicare as payment in full; you will never see a bill from Sage Hospice. Sage Hospice also contracts with many other health insurance providers. We will be more than happy to look up your coverage.
