How we help in Long-Term Care Communities

We help staff manage the demands of serious illness care

We also offer extra services free of charge like music therapy, art therapy, staff training, and education for residents’ family members, to make life better for everyone in your community, not just those on our service.

Hospice Care FAQs

  • Studies in people with cancer and heart failure showed that those on hospice lived longer than those receiving active treatment
  • About 15% of people on hospice are discharged due to a stabilization or improvement in their health

Especially for people over age 70, going to the hospital has many risks. People with restricted mobility or cognitive impairment are at higher risk for hospital-associated decline. Consistent management by hospice RNs and CNAs helps prevent the development of problems that would require hospital or ER admission.

  • Medications that effectively treat symptoms of the resident’s primary diagnosis can continue to be provided; each hospice has their own formulary
  • Medications unrelated to the hospice diagnosis can be paid under the resident’s Medicare PART D benefit or other private insurance

The selection of their hospice physician is up to the resident. They can choose your community physician, their previous PCP, or the hospice medical director. If our medical director is selected, they will stay in close contact with you on the care plan.
