Who Can Use Hospice?


Hospice offers services to patients who have a terminal illness with a limited life expectancy and whose physician has determined the goal of treatment is palliative care (treating symptoms) versus curative care (treating disease). Hospice patients do not have to be homebound, yet patients must be aware of their condition and reside within the Hospice service area.

No patient will be denied Hospice care because of race, color, creed, age, national origin, gender, handicap, religion, genetic makeup, marital status, diagnosis, sexual preference, or because of an inability to pay for Hospice services.
