Hospice can help to resolve conflict, deal with financial issues and submit medical bills and face the burden of grief. Staff and volunteers assume these responsibilities so patients and their families can live the fullest life possible.

Hospice-care providers accept life’s challenges. They are committed to increasing their skills and understanding in order to enhance the care they provide to each person they are privileged to serve.

Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance plans. Care is provided wherever the person lives: in their home or at an extended-care facility. Care is available to people of all ages, with any life-limiting illness, regardless of their ability to pay.

If you or a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness, learning more about hospice and palliative care could be much more than you think.
