Primrose staff are dedicated to serving the needs of our patients who face life-limiting illnesses and we are always available to help with special concerns and answer questions that arise.
Hospice Services at Primrose
We are often asked about hospice care by patients as well as family members. When you contact us, we provide the following information in addition to answering any other questions you may have:
- Every patient is entitled to hospice care under Medicare.
- Hospice care includes grief counseling for our patients and their family members, extra supervision, administration of medication, and comfort measures.
- Primrose staff assists with all necessary medications and healthcare supplies to ease the burden, allowing families to focus on their loved one.
We understand that each family has its own sensitivities and that the delicate nature of dealing with a life-limiting condition can sometimes be a difficult situation. We are here, whenever you need us. At Primrose those who receive hospice or palliative care are encouraged to continue interactions and activities with other residents and join in other special programs and services we offer whenever possible.
What Is Hospice?
Hospice offers care and support for the emotional, social, and spiritual well-being of patients and their families in end-of-life situations.
Hospice care and palliative care services provided through programs from local resources such as St. Joseph’s Health, Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, and Heartland Hospice augment the care provided by Primrose staff. These hospitals offer a wide range of specialty services to meet your loved ones needs.
These hospice programs are part of our commitment to deliver compassionate, expert care, offer peace of mind, and provide comfort to our patients with a life-limiting condition, as well as support for their family members. Our work at Primrose in conjunction with these hospice programs helps our patients and their families express what they need and create memories that will last beyond their time at Primrose.
