Samaritan Evergreen Hospice (SEH) exists to support terminally ill patients and their families in their place of residence. SEH seeks neither to prolong life nor to hasten death. The hospice goal is to help the terminally ill and their families cope with impending death on all levels: physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially and financially. SEH is a home-based program, however, patients are followed wherever they reside. For some patients, our hospice house offers a place where their symptoms can be better managed. We also provide respite care, giving family caregivers a break from the strain of providing care. SEH care continues for the family through the patient's death and into bereavement.
Samaritan Evergreen Hospice (SEH) is a department of Samaritan Albany General Hospital. Hospice is a part of the continuum of care within the communities served by the program. Care for terminally ill patients and their families is provided under the medical direction of a physician in collaboration with other departments in the hospital, other area hospitals, physicians, area nursing homes, community agencies, medical equipment providers, pharmacies, and other health-care providers. The goal of Hospice is to promote optimum physical, emotional, and mental well-being of all eligible individuals, regardless of race, color, creed, age, sex, handicap, socio-economic status, national origin or ability to pay. Hospice care is provided based on the mission, vision and values set forth by Samaritan Health Services.
