Home Care & Hospice
Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento
Hospice care is provided in the home, a home-like setting, or skilled nursing facility and is staffed by a medical director, chaplain, nurses and aides, medical social workers, a bereavement coordinator, and a team of trained volunteers.
Hospice services are available to all individuals facing a terminal illness who reside within the hospital's service area and who have caregivers available as needed. Cost for care is covered by Medicare, Medi-Cal, most insurance companies, and long-term care policies. However, hospice services are not based upon a person's ability to pay. Sutter Hospice is generously supported through the Roseville Community Health Foundation and Sutter Medical Center Foundation, the charitable arms of the hospital system. Funding is provided by memorial donations, memberships, individual contributions, bequests and fundraising activities.
