Hospice is for anyone facing a life-limiting illness, regardless of age. #hospicemonth #mythsofhospice
Medicare and other health insurance programs cover the cost of hospice care in its entirety. Charitable gift support from the community often allows Hospice providers to care for a person who is not eligible for hospice through their insurance coverage. #nationalhospicemonth
Most Hospice providers offer bereavement services to any member of the community who has suffered a loss through the death of a family member. There is usually no cost for any of these services as they are supported by charitable donations. #hospicemonth

Hospice provides love & dignity in the final days, weeks or months of an individual's life. When curing is no longer the focus, an enormous amount of caring occurs.
Hospice nurses are experts in symptom management, but they also provide inspiration, comfort and support to our patients.
