Grief through the holidays

If you or someone you know is experiencing the holidays for the first time without a loved one, it is important to remember it is going to be challenging. Even for those whose loss happened long ago, the holidays can bring grief back to the surface.

Because SSM Health at Home recognizes the holidays can be difficult for those who are grieving, we hold “Grief Through the Holidays” support groups in many of the communities we serve. These groups are offered at no cost and are open to adults. Find a group near you.


Early admission to hospice can improve quality of life

Many people at end-of-life wish to stay at home surrounded by the people and things they love. Hospice can help make that wish a reality, providing physical, emotional and spiritual care to both patients and their families.

However many potentially eligible patients never have the opportunity to experience this special type of care either because they do not seek hospice services at all or because they do not seek them soon enough.

Early admission can help patients maintain their best quality of life and help them remain at home. Learn more.


Flooding response

Like many of our employees, patients and neighbors, SSM Health at Home was affected by the recent flooding. Due to the rising water, our Reedsburg office was closed to the public from August 30 to September 4, 2018.

When an event like this occurs the well-being of our patients becomes our focus. We have emergency preparedness plans in place to make sure our patients continue to receive the care they need. Patients in affected areas were identified and contact was made to ensure their safety. Staff continued to make home visits and deliveries to everyone they were physically able to get to, navigating road closures and detours as needed.

Our team did incredible work to provide assistance to our patients and each other. We would like to thank everyone involved for the resilience and compassion demonstrated across our organization.

SAFE at Home

Preventing falls is much more effective than treating their results. The goal of SAFE at Home is to help people live falls free at home. Learn more.

Heels for Meals

On August 23 guests joined us at the Discovery Center in Madison for an elegant evening of dining, dancing and donating in support of our Meals On Wheels program.

The event, hosted by NBC15’s John Stofflet and Amy Pflugshaupt raised more than $21,000 which will provide about 2,600 meals.
