Hospice Services:Hospice services focus on the individual as well as the family members and loved ones rather than on the disease. Hospice provides holistic care for the patient and the family. We provide emotional, physical and spiritual support. We believe a patient with a life limiting illness has the right to live his or her final days as comfortable as possible, to the fullest extent possible and to experience a dignified and peaceful death. Some of the main hospice services are listed below:
Pain, symptom, and medication management
Medication, medical equipment, and supplies related to the terminal condition will be paid for by hospice agency
Social services and spiritual counseling for the patient and loved ones
Early intervention to assist the loved ones with the problems associated with the death and grieving process
Trained volunteer services
Bereavement social and spiritual services for the survivors for thirteen months after the death of a loved one
Physical, occupational, and speech therapist
Certified nursing assistants
Licensed Master Social Worker

Most private insurance plans will also cover home health and hospice services. Patients may also pay privately for services that do not qualify for reimbursement.
