SouthernCare is dedicated to bringing patients comfort, compassion and dignity when life matters most. SouthernCare, Inc. is an affiliate of Curo Health Services and offers compassionate hospice care to thousands of special patients and families. Hospice care allows patients and families to focus on the thing that matters most — precious time with loved ones. SouthernCare is committed to clinical excellence and integrity, and strives to provide patients the highest quality of care and comfort. Hospice cares for the person, not the disease. Skilled professionals design an all-encompassing program, customized to each patient. These programs address physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and family. Counseling and education about disease management and the dying process are also provided to the family unit in conjunction with patient care. SouthernCare emphasizes that hospice is not a place; it is a plan of care for individual patients. These comprehensive care plans are directed by the patient and carried out by the hospice team, which may include the patient and family, the patient’s physicians, a medical doctor, experienced nurses and skilled volunteers. Because of this care team, families and patients can better control what seems uncontrollable. Patients may receive hospice care wherever they call home: home or apartment, a friend or relative’s home, an assisted living facility, a nursing home, and, when medically necessary, hospice services are available to hospitalized individuals. Hospice is covered by Medicare/Medicaid so long as a physician certifies that the patient has a terminal illness with a life expectancy of 6 months or less. It is also covered by many private insurance companies. Let SouthernCare help you enrich the quality of life of your loved one as life’s journey nears its completion. Call today.
