About SSM Hospice

Special Care for a Special Time . . .

Hospice care is delivered at a time when caring, comfort, assistance and a special kind of healing are needed. It is a very special way of caring for people with a limited life expectancy.

Hospice care gives individuals and their care givers a comforting alternative to the traditional hospital setting, making it possible for the terminally ill person to remain at home or in other familiar surroundings.

Hospice Care is Affordable

Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance and managed care plans cover Hospice services. No additional charges are made for family guidance, crisis intervention and our Bereavement Program. Medicare/Medicaid patients are covered for all Hospice services including medications (related to terminal illness), home medical equipment and routine home care services.

For more information, please call (660) 562-7912.
