Eligibility Guidelines

Who uses hospice services?

Our hospice serves any person with any life-limiting illness and those they consider family.  Care is provided to anyone regardless of diagnosis, age, gender, nationality, creed, race, sexual orientation or ability to pay.  Patients must be under the care of a licensed physician and be a resident of our service area.  Hospice care is not only for bed-bound or homebound patients.  Among the illnesses our patients have had are cancer, COPD, cardiac disease, renal disease, neurological illnesses, Alzheimer’s disease, cirrhosis, leukemia, and others.

How does one participate?

Anyone can call anytime. We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  A nurse is always available to answer your questions.  Patients, family members or even friends can call.  There is no obligation and no charge.
