Frequently Asked Questions
Who is hospice care for?
Hospice is end-of-life care provided for those with a life-threatening or terminal illness. To determine if hospice care is appropriate for yourself or a loved one, it is important to discuss all the options available with your physician.
Where does hospice care take place?
Hospice patients are usually cared for in their own homes or the homes of loved ones. A private nurse can be sent to your home or a place where the patient will feel most comfortable to provide individualized support and care.
How much does hospice care cost?
The cost of hiring a private nurse for hospice care will vary depending on the level of assistance you need and the total hours of care. Hospice can last anywhere from a few days to months. It will also depend on the nurse’s licensure, experience, and training.
Do you accept insurance?
At this time, we are private pay only. However, we do work with our clients to assist in reimbursement from both primary health and long term care insurance. Please contact your individual insurance carrier to confirm eligibility.
Do I need a doctor’s authorization?
Yes, a doctor’s order is required to hire a private nurse for in-home hospice care. An assessment by a nurse does not require a doctor’s approval, but any form of care does.
What is the difference between hospice care and palliative care?
In hospice care, the goal is to improve the quality of life for people who have advanced, life-limiting illnesses. In palliative care, the objective is to relieve pain, stress and symptoms associated with illness to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.
