Hospice 

Hospice care is end-of-life care. A Team of health care professionals and volunteers provides it. They give medical, psychological, and spiritual support. The goal of the care is to help people who are dying have peace, comfort, and dignity. The caregivers try to control pain and other symptoms so a person can remain as alert and comfortable as possible. Hospice programs also provide services to support a patient’s family.

 

Usually, a hospice patient is expected to live 6 months or less. Hospice care can take place at:

 

  • At home

  • At a hospice center

  • In a hospital

  • In a skilled nursing facility

 

Payment Source: Medicare, Veterans Benefits, LTC Insurance and Medi-Cal
