Hospice is available for patients with any condition their physician believes will claim life within six months. Our patients include those with illnesses such as cancer, congestive heart failure, emphysema, end stage dementia and AIDS. People who have Medicare are entitled to hospice care if they seek it. Most insurances have a hospice benefit. We accept all patients regardless of ability to pay.
Hospice is a philosophy as well as a model of care, a paradigm and perspective in caring for patients, patients' families and the greater community as a whole. I know I speak for our entire team when I say it is an honor to serve the patients and families of our community.
