Philosophy of Services

DID YOU KNOW

• Hospice ….. Is care, comfort and respect for patients with a life limiting illness and their families

• Hospice …..Is covered 100% by Medicare, Medicaid and a benefit of most private insurance

• Hospice……Comes to you, wherever you call home

• Hospice……Provides medical equipment, supplies and comfort medications

• Patients placed on hospice care live on average 29 days longer than those who reject hospice care

• Even though hospice usage has increased in the last few years, it is still being recommended too late for a patient to utilize all of its great benefits.  

• YOU have the RIGHT to choose which hospice provider you would like to use.  Many patients are discharged from a hospital with a hospice they know very little about.  Ask for several different hospice agencies and interview each one to find the agency that speaks to your needs.  

• Hospice Services at Methodist ElderCare offers a program devoted to fulfilling patients last wishes called, Hearts for Hospice.  

• Research has shown that the majority of Americans would prefer to be at home during the end-of-life—Hospice makes this possible for most people.

• A person may keep his or her referring physician involved while receiving hospice care.
