Hospice Care Criteria
We provide hospice care to clients who have been diagnosed by the attending physician with a terminal illness. Hospice is the suitable choice for families and individual patients when aggressive curative treatment could no longer achieve recovery. At this point, we focus on helping the client become more comfortable at home as he or she deals with the symptoms of the progressing disease. In place of rehabilitative care, the team will focus on palliative techniques.
Sierra Hospice Care is able to accept referrals from the following sources:
- Hospital Personnel
- Families and Friends of the Patient

Admission to Hospice Care
Please call our office for assistance and a nurse will visit you or your loved one at home or in the care facility you are currently admitted in. Our staff will provide you with all the information you need to decide whether or not hospice care at home is your best and most appropriate option.
