Comfort Versus Curative
Our team aims to give the highest quality of life to you and your loved one during final portion of their time. With a prognosis of six months or less, managing symptoms and pain can improve one’s quality of life.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Hospice care is available to anyone and everyone who is considering it without a doctor’s referral. A patient is able to be referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s direction. You can use our online hospice referral as well.
Hospice is Affordable
Regional Hospice is committed to providing quality care for everyone. Most private health insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare cover some or all of the costs of hospice care.
