Where does hospice take place
Hospice care takes place at the home, a nursing or assisted living facility, in house facility, or a hospital. Hospice services take place where the patient calls home.
Hospice patients and family are cared for by a team of specially trained professionals such as a physician, nurse, home aides, social worker, spiritual counselors and therapists.
Patients are referred to Hospice Care when life expentancy is approximately 6 months or less. Hospice care can continue longer than 6 months if needed with a physician's certification.
Hospice is not a place, but a concept of care designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families at the end of life.
