Eligibility for Hospice Care
Hospice offers compassionate care and comfort to people at the end of life with education and support to family members. It brings hope to help people live life as fully as possible, offers dignity when there is not a cure, and surrounds families with love at one of life’s most challenging times.
Who can be in hospice?
Anyone of any age whose life is limited — by any illness — can receive hospice care at our facility or in-home hospice care.
When is it time for hospice?
When medical treatments are no longer effective, care becomes focused on comfort and symptom relief. Generally, someone enters hospice when the physician believes life expectancy to be six months or less.
Are you in a situation where you need to make decisions for a loved one who is terminally ill? Perhaps we can help. Please read through our Frequently Asked Questions for your reference. We hope we can make this difficult time easier to bear for you and your entire family.
