Hospice Care
Posted by:

Are you wondering if hospice care is the right choice for you or your family? To be eligible for hospice services the patient must agree to comfort measures to ease pain, rather than seeking a cure for the actual disease. Hospice home care provides comprehensive services for patients and their families.

Hospice Services

  • Pain control and symptom management
  • Spiritual support and care
  • Oxygen and medical equipment
  • Medical supplies
  • Medical and nursing services
  • Comfort such as massage, music, and aromatherapy

You can receive hospice home care in conjunction with senior home care services such as: bath aids, light housekeeping, shopping and companionship. Care from a hospice agency and home care agency can be given simultaneously. Hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances.

If you would like assistance or information finding hospice care you can always call us at 1-866-273-2995, visit our Senior Home Care Agency Directory, or fill out this simple online formGet Help Now!
