+ What questions should I ask when interviewing a hospice?

Finding hospice home care or a hospice facility begins a major step in you or your loved one's journey, so it's vital to find a hospice company that you feel confident in. Consider the following:

  • Does your hospice make visits in the county where I live?
  • How many times per week will the nurse visit me in my home?
  • What happens if there is an emergency at night or on the weekend?
  • What is the average response time of after-hours staff?
  • What kind of certifications does your agency/staff hold?
  • Does your hospice provide special services like massage therapy or music?
