Hospice Benefit

Hospice is about life and living each day to the fullest. It is an interdisciplinary team approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional, and spiritual support for persons facing a life-limiting illness. Not only does hospice focus on the patient, but the family as well. It is our belief that a person’s illness not only affects them, but the ones that love and care for them. Hospice care takes place in the comfort and privacy of an individual’s home – wherever that may be: private residence, independent living, assisted living, or a long term care facility. In certain situations, hospice care can also be provided in a hospital setting for those that require a higher level of care. Hospice is available to patients of any age, race, religion, or illness and is covered 100% by Medicare and most private insurances. No patient will be turned away because of inability to pay.


What You Should Know About Hospice:

  • Heritage brings hospice care services to the patient's home, whether a private residence, long term care community or nursing home
  • If care cannot be managed at home, patients receive inpatient hospice care until symptoms are under control
  • Telecare responds to patient and family questions 24 hours a day, and can dispatch a team member to the patient's bedside if necessary

What does hospice care include?

  • Hospice includes the services of an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals: Physicians (the patient's own physician and the hospice physicians, who are specialist in controlling pain and other symptoms of serious illness) prescribe medications and other methods of pain and symptom control.
  • when it is actually about helping the ill experience the most of their lives. Little do they know that hospice care sometimes extends the life of a terminally ill person because treatments and medical procedures that stress them are removed which makes them to be happier.
  • The hospice staffs can regularly visit the patient, assess his or her needs and provide additional services and care. They are always available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to give your family the substantial care and support whenever you need.
