About Hospice Care


Hospice is a type of specialized care provided to individuals who are nearing the end of their lives. Here are some things that someone should know about hospice:

  • Hospice is focused on comfort care instead of curative care. The goal is to help individuals live as comfortably as possible in their final days.
  • Hospice care can be provided in a person’s home, a hospice facility, or a nursing home.
  • Hospice care is provided by a team of healthcare professionals, volunteers, social workers, and chaplains. The team works together to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support to the individual and their family.
  • Hospice care is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. This means that there are typically no out-of-pocket costs for hospice care.
  • Hospice care is appropriate for individuals with a terminal illness who have a life expectancy of six months or less. However, individuals can continue to receive hospice care beyond six months if their condition remains stable.
  • Choosing hospice care is a personal decision that should be made with the individual’s healthcare provider and family.

Overall, hospice care provides support and comfort to individuals and their families during a difficult time. It is an important option to consider for those who are facing a terminal illness.
