The time to learn about hospice is before a life-limiting illness occurs. Moreover, the earlier hospice is involved, the more it can make the patient's final days, as comfortable as possible.
Hospice is special kind of care for dying people, their families and their caregivers that:
Most people do not want to die in pain or alone in hospitals. They prefer to be at home, alert and free of pain, among the people and things they love. Hospice is dedicated to making this happen. Hospice patients are living with a wide range of diagnoses including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and lung disease. However, regardless of a patient's condition, or age, Hospices opens their door and hearts to all persons diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses.
Once a patient has decided to longer seek curative treatment for their terminal illness, they are hospice eligible. Hospice will not treat the disease; the focus will be on palliative care (comfort) and managing the symptoms of the disease.
Referrals can come from the patient, family, physician, clergy or friends. Hospice will contact the patient's physician to ensure he or she agrees that hospice care is appropriate.
Medicare, Medicaid and most commercial insurance policies have hospice coverage. There is generally little, to no expense to the patient and family.
