Hospice

Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice is here to help you live fully in the last phases of an incurable disease. We utilize a team approach that includes a medical director, registered nurse case managers, hospice aides and social workers, and bereavement and spiritual coordinators. They will work with you and your family to create a plan of care tailored to your needs and wishes.

Hospice isn’t a place; it’s an experience. And hospice care isn’t just for the patient – family and loved ones come along on the journey, and all of you need emotional support and compassionate care.

Provided wherever the patient calls home: a private residence, apartment, assisted living, or nursing facility. Our team makes regularly scheduled visits to provide care based on each patient’s needs and desires. Our staff is also available on a 24/7 on-call basis.
This level of care is utilized either in our Inpatient Center or a contracted facility when our patient’s need for pain or symptom management cannot be managed in the home. The patient returns home when symptoms are controlled.
Provided during a period of crisis to achieve palliation or management of acute medical symptoms in order to maintain the patient at home. Provided on a short-term basis when the patient needs more intensive care that is predominantly nursing care, for at least eight hours within a 24-hour period.
Respite care may be utilized when family members caring for the patient need a breather from the demands of caregiving, or have obligations to attend to. The hospice team arranges to have the patient transferred to a Medicare-approved facility for up to five days per respite stay while the caregiver gets some much-needed rest. The patient and his/her caregiver have the choice of utilizing our Inpatient Center or a contracted facility. Room and Board is covered under this level of care for a total of five days for each respite stay.

“Thank you for making the most difficult things easier…for the hugs when we were in need…your kindness, and for the strawberry sundaes. We thank you for sharing your gifts, and striving for excellence in the service of others.”

“The care given was excellent. The kindness and compassion given to our dad and family by the whole staff was outstanding and appreciated.”

“In all my contact with Hospice care, your people have shown more care and compassion to my husband and myself than I have ever experienced…”

“My mom received the best, most professional care we could possibly have hoped for. She was happy, pain free, and very well cared for.”

“Every time I have spoken with any one of your staff I always feel like I’m getting a big hug. Coming to Sharon S. Richardson was like having the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders.”

“The time while my mom was in your care, held some of the most traumatic yet incredible times of our family’s life. There are no words to describe the depth of our gratitude for your expertise, compassion, and guidance, whether medical or spiritual. The hospice and entire team never fell short of Kim’s promise. My mother was kept comfortable, at peace and passed with dignity. Our family will keep you in our hearts, thoughts and prayers forever. ”

“I don’t have words to describe it. My husband had become so weak but was still able to return the salute of the veteran volunteer. I know in my heart it meant everything to him. What an honor to send him off like that. He was a Marine until the very end.” 

, -Cindy Friedl, wife of the late John A. Friedl, United States Marine Corps
