Frequently Asked Questions


What is hospice?

Hospice is a special way of caring for people who are in the final stages of life. The goal of hospice is to provide emotional, physical, and spiritual support to the individual and their family.


How does hospice work?

Hospice care can be provided in a person’s home or at a care center. Hospice offers support, education, and expertise to assist caregivers. We strive to improve the individual’s quality of life by managing pain and other symptoms, and providing services to support an individual’s unique needs.


When is the right time to consider hospice care?

Physicians generally recommend hospice when there is a life-limiting illness and a cure is not possible, and/or when the focus is on comfort instead of a cure.


Is hospice limited only to people with cancer?

No. Hospice is for anyone experiencing a life-limiting illness or condition such as advanced heart disease, lung disease, end-stage dementia, and other chronic conditions.


Who pays for hospice?

Hospice services are paid for by Medicare, Medical Assistance, and most private insurances.
