Comfort Versus Curative
Deciding when to consider hospice care is not always an easy process, with varying factors in each situation. Typically, a 6 month terminal prognosis is an adequate and proper time for hospice. We also suggest hospice for children with life-limiting conditions and illnesses.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Our hospice care is available upon request from anybody. It does not have to always be through a doctor. Patient references can come from family members, friends, clergy, and others. To make the referral process more convenient, we offer online hospice referral through our website.
