Let Family Take You Home

Family Hospice provides the best care where you're most comfortable by bringing our comprehensive care team to you, in your home.

We imagine a world in which every qualified patient and family experiences the full hospice benefit.

Understanding the hospice benefit:

Hospice is a philosophy of care designed to help patients who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting disease live their best lives for as long as possible. Hospice is about managing symptoms rather than treating the disease. Hospice is committed to honoring the wishes of patients and their families when life matters most.

Hospice care is provided by a trained team of healthcare professionals who are passionate about providing care for patients with an advanced-staged illness. Your hospice care team includes a medical director, registered nurse, certified nurse assistant, social worker, and chaplain. In addition, hospice volunteers are available upon request. The hospice care team designs a plan of care that supports the wishes, values, and goals of each patient and their family.

Hospice is not a place but a philosophy. Routine hospice care happens wherever the patient calls home, whether that’s a private residence, assisted living facility, or skilled nursing facility. Your hospice care team provides services where the patient feels most comfortable, in their home.

Hospice becomes an appropriate plan of care for a patient who has exhausted all curative treatments related to their disease – those who wish to have their symptoms managed while avoiding continual medical appointments and trips to the hospital. Choosing hospice care is not an act of giving up, but rather a decision that prioritizes quality of life over treating the disease.

Patients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and who choose comfort care over continued treatments, qualify for hospice care. Admission to hospice requires a physician to certify the terminal diagnosis followed by a hospice nurse completing a face-to-face evaluation. Common qualifying diagnoses include heart disease, respiratory diseases, Alzheimer’s/dementia, liver/renal failure, neurological diseases, stroke, and cancer.

Hospice care is 100% covered as a Medicare benefit. In addition, most Medicaid and private insurances provide a hospice benefit. Family Hospice can assist you with identifying the best option for your hospice benefit coverage.

I can’t say enough positive things about The Family Hospice team who cared for my mother in her final weeks of life. It was an emotional time for me as the caregiver and a stressful time for mom with relocation and transition into an assisted living facility. They ensured that my mom got all of the proper medical equipment she needed to be as comfortable as possible. The Family Hospice team genuinely, tenderly, and efficiently met my mother’s medical and spiritual needs and reduced much of her pain and suffering with such professionalism and humanity. Her quality of life was dignified up until her last day on this earth in large part due to hospice’s compassionate care. Thank you for treating us like “family”.

When it became apparent that my Mom needed hospice care I was determined to find the best. I began asking around in our community including friends, family, and medical providers which hospice they would recommend for their loved ones. Time and time again I kept hearing the name Family Hospice so finally I decided I would reach out to a Family Hospice representative and find out for myself. From my very 1st encounter with a Family Hospice team member, I discovered that hospice care is about living – not dying…this was something I hadn’t expected to hear but the realization that hospice is about living and not dying was music to my ears. I took the steps to get my Mom signed up for hospice services with Family Hospice and now I can say that I believe it was perhaps the best decision I have ever made. Family Hospice took excellent care of my Mom and by doing so it allowed her the opportunity to continue living life to the fullest extent possible. I would recommend Family Hospice to anyone and take great pleasure in doing so.
