Hospice Is Not A Place
Because Hospice is a plan of care, not a place, patients may receive Hospice Care wherever they call home:
- Home or apartment
- A relative or friend’s Home
- Assisted Living Facility
- Nursing Home
When medically necessary, our services are also available to hospitalized individuals.
Who Provides Hospice?
Our Hospice team is a group of highly, skilled Hospice professionals and community resources. Because Hospice focuses on the patient and family, and not the disease, our hospice team creates an individualized care plan based on the specific needs, wishes and values of the patient and family.
This comprehensive plan of care is directed by the patient and carried out by our hospice team, which may include but is not limited to:
- Patient and Family
- Patient’s Physician
- Medical Director
- Experienced Nurses
- Social Worker
- Hospice aides
- Chaplain/Bereavement Counselor
- Trained Volunteers
Through the assistance of the Hospice care team, patients and families are able to control what at first seems uncontrollable. With pain and symptom management, education and support patients and families are able to focus on what is truly important When Life Matters Most.
Who Pays for Hospice?
Hospice is a fully covered Medicare/Medicaid benefit, unlimited in length; and is also covered by many private insurance companies. Most plans cover hospice care, medications, supplies and equipment related to the hospice diagnosis.
Early referrals to Hospice help patients and families access and receive the maximum benefit and full scope of hospice services.
Hospice care offers a patient and family comfort, compassion, and dignity, When Life Matters Most . . .
Curo Health Services, and its eight hospice affiliates, will admit any patient with a life-limiting illness that meets the eligibility criteria.
Patients will be accepted for care without discrimination on the race, color, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability (mental or physical), communicable disease, or place of national origin.
Our mission is to honor life and offer compassion to individuals and their families when facing a life-limiting illness.
