Interim Healthcare, a locally owned and operated agency that specializes in providing high quality, in-home healthcare to Upstate South Carolina residents, has started delivering in-home hospice care to residents of Oconee County. With the addition of in-home hospice care, Interim Healthcare now offers Oconee County residents its signature full continuum of care—a flexible set of in-home healthcare services that allows Interim to care for a patient with changing and complex healthcare needs. Interim has offered in-home hospice and the full continuum of healthcare services in other parts of the Upstate since 1996.
“Adding in-home hospice services to Oconee County represents Interim Healthcare’s commitment to providing the full continuum of in-home care to all of the communities that we serve,” said Ray Schroeder, founder and owner of Interim Healthcare. “The continuum of care puts families at a bit more ease because they know that their loved one will always have high quality care delivered by trusted, experienced providers within the comfort of their own home.”
Interim Healthcare’s in-home hospice services also include spiritual support for the patient and his or her family, bereavement services, grief support groups and community education programs. Interim Healthcare’s hospice services are covered, in full or in part, by most insurance plans. Medicare offers special hospice benefits that relieve many patients of nearly all of their healthcare payment concerns, including equipment and medications.
Schroeder said, “Studies continue to show what we at Interim have known for many years: patients who utilize hospice services tend to live longer and live more peacefully than those who do not. Families also have the peace of mind that enables them to have fuller experiences with their loved one at the end of his or her life.”
