The focus of hospice services is palliative care – the relief of pain and suffering when cure is no longer possible.
How is hospice care beneficial?
Hospice is comprehensive, specialized care for patients and families. Services and programs support the unique physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs of patients, families and friends. Hospice care also involves expert pain relief and symptom management should the need arise during certain end-stage disease processes.
Who is an appropriate patient for hospice?
Hospice is appropriate when three conditions arise:
A person develops a terminal medical condition and has a prognosis defined in terms of days, weeks or months. The resident or primary decision-maker chooses hospice care.
The patient’s personal physician confirms the patient’s prognosis and supports the decision for hospice care.
Can a person still keep his/her own doctor and still be in a hospice program?
Yes. Most physicians collaborate with the hospice staff to provide quality end-of-life care.
Who pays for hospice care?
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans cover hospice services.
