Hospice care specializes in care for those facing life limiting illnesses. Hospice Care is more then just caring of a paitent in the final days, it is more physical, social and emotional care given to a person. Hospice patient care is done at the patient's home or a home like facility. Our certified staff is able to provide a patient and their familes with the care they need with the life expenctancy they were given.
Patients living in a nursing facility or long term care facilities can receive specialized visits from physicians, nurses, and social workers, in addition to other care and services provided by the facility.
Hospice patients and their loved ones are cared for by a team of certified doctors, nurses, social workers, and therapists working together in a team to address the patient's and family's needs. In addition, hospice care will help provide medications, supplies, equipment, and hospital services.
Hospice care is fully covered by most major insurance companies. It is provided by Medicare nationwide, by Medicaid in most states, and by most private health insurance policies. To be sure of coverage, families should check with their health insurance provider.
