When to choose hospice care?
When a patient is diagnosed with a terminal illness and the prognosis is measured in months, it is then that hospice care should be considered. Also, when a patient has a chronic disease process that has progressed to end-stage, hospice care may be appropriate. Patients have the right to choose the hospice of their choice.
How to obtain our services?
A physician orders hospice when he or she feels the patient meets eligibility and will benefit most from this type of care. Ask your physician how we can help or call us directly to get more information about the services your loved ones deserve. Remember patients have the right to choose the hospice of their choice.
