Physicians may make the referral for Hospice care, or the patient or family can make a request for Hospice services by calling the office.  Hospice will verify if this referral meets criteria through contact with the physician.

Early entry into the Hospice program ensures the opportunity for the patient and family to receive all the benefits of the Hospice program.  The physician, Hospice team, patient, and family direct the plan of care; however, the family primarily cares for the patient.  Hospice trains the family to participate in patient treatment and encourages open communication.

Security of a caring environment, sustained expert care, and the assurance that the patient and family will not be abandoned, ease the psychological discomfort of the dying process for all involved.  Privacy is given to the family in all aspects of care and at the time of death.
