I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS COMING TO HOSPICE TO LIVE
Hospice is traditionally thought to be for patients who are in the last six months of life, but some patients receive hospice services for years if their disease process is slow. Because hospice is focused on living, people who utilize hospice services early in the course of a life-limited illness have more time to develop personal and professional rapport with hospice staff and volunteers, discuss goals, and create an optimal plan of care designed around patient and family wishes.
Patients who are referred to hospice care early in their disease process can receive the full benefit of hospice care, including getting their medical, social, and spiritual needs met. One of hospice's many goals is pain and symptom management and is just one of the benefits of early referral. There are many other benefits, which include:
HOSPICE TREATS THE PERSON, NOT THE DISEASE
In 2008 Help for Health opened a standalone hospice home, built through efforts from dedicated volunteers and community contributions over several years. A county-wide 1% capital tax was passed. The hospice home is an eight bed facility that serves hospice patients 24/7. Help for Health also serve hospice patients in their own homes. We are Medicaid and Medicare certified and accept most private insurances. No one is denied services due to inability to pay.
