At Stein, no one is turned away because of their inability to pay. The cost of hospice service is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance companies who pay hospice a daily rate that covers 100% of all expenses related to the terminal illness. Through the generous support of individuals, businesses and foundations, Stein Hospice has the ability to help everyone in need. Care includes nursing visits, medical equipment and medications related to the advanced illness, short-term inpatient and respite care, nursing assistant services, social workers, spiritual care and bereavement services.
Our range of services is extensive, from nursing care to guided imagery and grief counseling, and we bring all these services to wherever the patient calls home. Many patients want to remain in their own house, and we provide all the services and supplies needed to make that happen. Other patients live in a nursing home, assisted living or independent living apartment, and we work closely with the facility staff to ensure a comprehensive plan of care is followed. Other patients come to the Care Center for pain and symptom relief. Regardless of where the patient lives, the level and quality of care from Stein Hospice is the same – excellent.
