If you or someone you love has become very ill and is not expected to live much longer, you may want to consider hospice as part of total health care. Making a decision to have hospice is often a difficult decision for people because it means acknowledging that death is near. However, hospice can be a tremendous blessing for people as it provides so much support and comfort at the end of life.
Unfortunately, most people elect hospice care long after they are actually eligible, and wish they had done so sooner. Almost all insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid, cover home hospice costs. If you are unsure whether it is time for hospice, our doctors and nurses are available to answer any questions for you.
The following are some of the reasons that may make a person appropriate for hospice. Answering yes to any of these questions may mean it is time to consider hospice.
Hospice is not for everyone, but the sooner a person elects hospice the more they will benefit from hospice services.
