SSM Hospice

We provide compassionate and quality care when a patient has a terminal illness.

Our team understands the special skills needed to care for people with a limited life expectancy and to provide comfort and guidance to caregivers, family and friends. SSM Health at Home Hospice emphasizes preserving dignity and improving quality of life through symptom management — which includes relief from emotional, spiritual and physical pain. This service is Medicare- and Medicaid-certified.

Our hospice services are a comforting alternative to the traditional hospital setting. Hospice services make it possible for a terminally ill person to remain in familar home surroundings and faces. And, although our care is focused in the home, support during short-term hospitalizations is also avalable for periods of crisis.

Our hospice services include:

  • Drugs for symptom management and pain relief
  • Short-term inpatient care, including respite care
  • Continuous care for brief periods of crisis
  • Home health aide and homemaker services
  • Physical occupational and speech therapy
  • Spiritual and other counseling services
  • Physician services
  • Skilled nursing
  • Spiritual support
  • Medical social services
  • Home medical equipment
  • Trained hospice volunteers

Hospice care is a great value
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance and managed care plans cover our hospice services. We don't charge you for family guidance, crisis intervention or for our bereavement services.
