It's about how you live
If you or someone you love is coping with a life-limiting illness, Enloe Hospice can help. Hospice is a philosophy of care where the focus is on quality of life. Hospice team members provide care to control symptoms, allow for improved comfort and support, enabling a person to remain at home. Hospice care is based on the understanding that:
- Dying is a natural process that is neither to be hastened or delayed.
- Dying is a human process, with attention to social, emotional and spiritual needs, as well as medical care.
- Quality of life is most important.
- The person and their family are central to care and decisions about what care is to occur.
Comfort and reassurance
We recognize that your decision to seek Hospice Care may be a difficult one. We hope that our services will provide you with the comfort and reassurance you need. Hospice Care is provided in the patient’s home, or other residence such as an assisted living facility or nursing home. It is our privilege to serve you.
Enloe Hospice began serving the community as a volunteer organization in 1978. The professional staff now includes medical director, registered nurses, medical social workers, physical therapy, home health aides and volunteer coordinator. Working together with you and your physician, this team develops a care plan to best meet your needs. We serve hundreds of families each year in Butte, Glenn and Tehama counties and are accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
The Hospice Team recognizes that any individual is more than their illness. We strive to provide care and support to social, emotional and spiritual concerns, as well as physical needs. Learn more about the Hospice caregivers.
Care and support is available in anticipation of the loss of a loved one, and for up to a year following the patient’s care. Social workers and professionally trained volunteers provide individual and group support.
We Honor Veterans
Enloe Medical Center is a We Honor Veterans Partner. This is a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). It focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment. By recognizing the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families, community providers, in partnership with VA staff, will learn how to accompany and guide them through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.
Most services provided by Enloe Hospice are covered by Medicare, MediCal, and private insurances. Coverage includes the home visits, medical equipment and medications related to the illness. We are committed to providing care and do not deny care because of an inability to pay. Community service information is available through the Billing Help Line at 530.332.6300, or on our billinq guestions web page. The generous support of community members and organizations makes this care possible.
