You or a loved one has received a terminal diagnosis.
You have all kinds of questions. Will I be a burden to my family? Will I be able to manage the pain? Can I stay in my home, or do I have to go to the hospital? How do I say goodbye?
Hospice care can help.
Hospice care is more than just medical care for the terminally ill. Much like physicians and midwives prepare families for the birth of a child, the hospice team helps families prepare for the death of a loved one by:
Hospice care helps patients live as fully as possible until the end of life.
For most hospice patients, this means being able to stay in their homes, in familiar surroundings with their family, friends, pets and comfortable routine. Our hospice team makes this possible by providing expert pain and symptom management, as well as emotional and spiritual support - all tailored to the patient's and family's needs and wishes.
Our hospice team works together with the patient and the patient's physician to develop a care plan to meet the patient's individual needs.
The care plan is adjusted to meet the changing nature of the patient's illness and the needs of family members and other primary caregivers.
Medicare, Medicaid and many private insurance plans provide a specific hospice care benefit.
The Hospice Care team is available to help with any questions you may have.
A simple call from your provider can initiate services.
