What is Hospice?
Hospice is a special way of caring for someone facing a life-limiting illness. The Hospice philosophy focuses on the care, not the cure. Hospice care provides pain relief and symptom control, as well as addressing the emotional, soical, and spiritual impact of the illness.
How is hospice paid for?
Hospice is paid for the same way as other medical services. Hospice is a benefit that is 100% covered under Medicare, most Medicaid plans, and many private insurance plans. Our team can assist you in determining eligibility. We are committed to providing superior end-of-life care regardless on one's ability to pay.
How are services started?
Under the direction of your physician, hospice care begins with a physical assessment by a registered nurse. Our nurse will evaluate your needs and create an individualized plan of care that includes a physical assessment, medication review and education on all of our support services. With hospice, care shifts from cure to comfort, focusing on pain and symptom management and quality of life.
What conditions does hospice care for?
We serve patients of all ages who have a variety of life-limiting diseases or conditions. These include, but are not limited to:

Hospice For All Seasons patients receiving care at home have access to our medical professionals 24 hours a day. If there is a medical crisis, patients and their families often have the choice of staying home instead of going to a hospital.
Hospice neither hastens nor prolongs death. Our goal is to help patients live the remainder of their lives as fully and comfortably as possible. When curative treatments are no longer working and/or a patient no longer desires to continue them, hospice is an available treatment option. Most people, if asked, will say they dream of a peaceful, comfortable end of life experience, surrounded by their loved ones. Our interdisciplinary team of trained professionals work together to deliver hospice services that can make that dream a reality.
It is never too early to start the conversation.
We believe in educating and empowering families to carefully consider their needs and personal wishes, now, before a medical crisis arises. The sooner hospice services are started, the greater the benefits are for patients and their families.
In every season ... we'll be there.
