About Hospice Care

What is Hospice?

Hospice focuses on providing health care, comfort, and support for patients battling a life-limiting illness. This kind of care isn’t a cure, but it eases the pain and burden that patients and their families experience.

When is Hospice Recommended?

Hospice care must be certified by the patient’s regular doctor, if they have one, or a hospice doctor. Hospice care is recommended when treatment can no longer cure or control the disease which unfortunately results in a shorter life timeline for patients.

Who is Eligible?

There are a few things to consider for a patient to be eligible for hospice care:

  • An individual must have a life expectancy of 6 months or less;
  • Certified by a physician as being terminally ill;
  • Entitled to Medicare, Part A
