Hospice care is medical care for terminally ill individuals who have a life expectancy of six months or less. However, care will still be provided beyond six months for as long as needed. Hospice care is focused on maximizing comfort for the individual by addressing physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs. Hospice care also provides support and counseling for family members during this difficult and trying time.
Hospice care can be provided at home, in a senior living community, or in a skilled nursing facility. Hospice care providers include physicians, nurses, chaplains, and other medical staff who are certified to care for terminally ill seniors. During the sensitive and often heartbreaking time of seeking hospice care, our advisors strive to match you with the best possible providers. We also do our part in providing support, compassion, and an empathetic shoulder to lean on.
