When is the right time to consider hospice care?
Hospice care is a noncurative option that focuses on your comfort when you have a prognosis of six months or less and you’ve decided not to seek treatment any longer. If you have a life-limiting illness, talking to your doctor about care options can help you make an informed choice on how best to preserve your quality of life.
Where are hospice care services provided?
We provide hospice care services wherever you are, whether in a private home or independent living facility. Our teams also visit assisted living and skilled nursing locations in Alamance, Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Orange, Person, Vance, and Wake counties.
How is Hospice care paid?
Medicare and Medicaid typically pay 100% for your services with no deductible or copay. Other payers vary widely in their coverage for hospice. While you can contact your insurance provider for information, you’re also able to work with our team to help determine coverage, pre-authorization needs, in-network status, and more.
