Hospice Care Criteria
We provide hospice care to clients who have been diagnosed by the attending physician with a terminal illness. Hospice is the suitable choice for families and individual patients when aggressive curative treatment could no longer achieve recovery. At this point, we focus on helping the client become more comfortable at home as he or she deals with the symptoms of the progressing disease. In place of rehabilitative care, the team will focus on palliative techniques.
H&A Hospice is able to accept referrals from the following sources:
- Hospital Personnel
- Families and Friends of the Patient
