Hospice shortage
October 2, 2015, Sarah Rea, The Sheet
… The Sausers say that June’s passing was eased by the help of Pioneer Home Health in Bishop, which sent staff members to Mammoth to counsel the family on what June needed in her final days. “The value of that care is incalculable. No matter how strong you feel you are and how much you’re sure you’ve done all the planning to get through this as a family and on your own, you’re not gonna make it without their support” he said.
However, had June Sauser lived in Walker, Bridgeport or anywhere in Mono County north of June Lake, her family would not have had those visits from the area’s only licensed in-home end-of-life care provider. Due to budget restrictions and the vast size of Mono and Inyo counties, Pioneer has been forced draw a line in the sand about where they are able to provide services for people needing care.
