Hospice is a 100% covered benefit under Medicare. The interdisciplinary team’s services, medications, equipment, and supplies related to the patient’s life-limiting illness are fully paid for. Hospice Care is also covered under Medicaid and most insurance plans.
We are happy to answer your questions about hospice services, whether they are needed now or you are just seeking information.
Once a doctor’s referral is received, we will talk with the patient and their family about their needs and preferences while receiving hospice care.

Providing Comfort and Support
Hospice care is a specialized care that focuses on supporting you and your loved ones during an advanced illness. The emphasis is on comfort and quality of life, rather than finding a cure. Hospice care enables you to live each day to the fullest as comfortably and dignified as possible.
CHOICES MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.
Hospice offers greater choices to people in the end stages of an incurable disease. We encourage patients to make intentional choices about how they spend their time and energy instead of having only their current medical status dictate the care they receive.
WHEN TO CONSIDER HOSPICE.
Hospice care is available to patients with an advanced illness and a diagnosis of 6 months or less. Often people wait too long to fully benefit from the support hospice offers, when patients and their family clearly get the most benefit from months of Hospice Care versus one’s final days.
Family Bereavement Services
Hospice Care is not just about the patient, but also about the patient’s family. Our staff is there to comfort, educate and assist the family however we can. After the loved one passes, our Bereavement Counselor keeps in touch up to 13 months with the family.
Where can Hospice Take Place
Hospice can take place in a long term care facility, in the patient’s home, or in some cases a hospital. Our goal is to allow you to be comfortable wherever you choose to live. Support is offered
24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Hospice volunteers are truly compassionate people. They generously give their time to patients who are at the ends of their lives. They also help hospice organizations run smoothly by completing administrative tasks. Hospice volunteers play many different roles, and they are an important part of every hospice organization.
