What is Hospice?
Hospice is a special type of healthcare service that is focused on symptom management with comfort measures through end of life care.
Hospice is a supportive role that provides care for the patient while supporting the primary caregiver.
Hospice never takes over the role of the primary caregiver, but will continue to support and oversee the care for the patient.
Hospice is mostly covered by Medicare, Medical, or Medicaid and most health insurances.
Hospice is an option when there is no longer a cure or treatment for someone with a terminal disease or illness.
How is Hospice initiated and what does it entail?
A conversation with a physician takes place about one’s condition and prognosis. A referral is then made to hospice by physician. A referral can be made by your doctor, family, and friends.
You can refer yourself to Hospice.
Once the referral is made, hospice will follow through and assist patient and family and/or the Primary caregiver with the process of admission, provision of needed DME (Durable Medical Equipment), and medication related to the hospice diagnosis.
Hospice will care for the patient wherever the patient lives; home, assisted living, skilled nursing facility, or board and care.
Hospice will manage all symptoms and oversee the care provided for the patient and support the primary caregiver. Hospice is a SUPPORTIVE ROLE. It does not take over the role of the primary caregiver.
