St. Clare Hospice House
915 12th St. Baraboo
At the St. Clare Hospice House, Home Health United- Hospice staff provide personal, emotional and spiritual care for hospice patients in a home-like setting. Residents receive full hospice services as needed, and family members and friends are encouraged to be involved with patient care. Home Health United Hospice staffs the Hospice House 24 hours a day with certified hospice aides.
Each of the four, private patient rooms has a bathroom, kitchenette, and sleeper sofa for guests. Common areas include a full kitchen, dining and activities room, a meditation room, lounge, and patio. Personal care, meals, laundry, and housekeeping are included in the room and board daily rate. Space is available for visiting and for peaceful meditation. Families may gather in the common areas or be together in the patient’s room.
The St. Clare Hospice House provides a restful environment for residents and families that help make spending final days there meaningful and less stressful. Family caregivers can spend as much time with the resident as they wish and take breaks when they need to.
As it is in most assisted living environments, room and board at the Hospice House is generally not covered by insurance. Patients and families pay privately for room and board. When needed, Home Health United - Hospice staff is available to assist in investigating alternative funding sources such as:
- Long Term Care Insurance
- Life Insurance
- Reverse Mortgage
- Medical Insurance
Also, the Hospice House Resident Fund is available to assist eligible families who may not be able to afford the room and board fees.
The St. Clare Hospice House is located on the property of St. Clare Meadows Care Center in Baraboo and was made possible in large part by generous gifts from the community through the St. Clare Health Care Foundation and the support of St. Clare Hospital & Health Services. The Hospice House, staffed and operated by Home Health United, is a manifestation of St. Clare’s healing mission to serve those at all stages of life with compassion and respect.
