Hospice Care Explained

Hospice care is a type of health service that is offered to patients with a terminal illness or who are no longer seeking aggressive or curative treatments. Hospice care can help extend the quality of life for the individual, providing a comfortable atmosphere where they are taken care of and can live peacefully.

Admission to hospice is typically based on a patient’s terminal diagnosis with a prognosis of six months or less. Through pain and symptom management, hospice addresses the physical, emotional, spiritual, and social end of life needs for both a patient and their family.

Where is Hospice Care Offered?

Patients with terminal illness can receive hospice care where they are living. This may include their private residence, independent living communities, assisted living facilities, memory care units, skilled nursing facilities, and hospitals.

Continuous Assessments

As every patient responds differently throughout the disease process, some prognoses can vary. Our care team continuously assesses each patient’s appropriateness for hospice care. If a patient’s condition improves, hospice care may no longer be necessary. In certain circumstances a patient’s condition may improve, and in this event, our care team will assist in discharge planning to ensure a continuum of care.

Since hospice is offered for patients that no longer seek curative or aggressive treatment, it is expected that future hospitalizations are undesired (with some exceptions for extreme cases). If a patient is brought to a hospital without prior hospice coordination, it is important to contact us, so a revocation can be discussed, if necessary.
