Hospice is an approach to care for people experiencing a life-limiting illness. It offers comprehensive services that address the physical, spiritual, social and emotional needs and preferences of the patient and family.
Hospice affirms life and emphasizes quality rather than quantity of life. Hospice does nothing to either hasten or postpone death, but rather focuses on making the patient as comfortable as possible during the dying process while supporting the patient’s family and caregivers.
Abode hospices provide hospice services in the home setting. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality of care while working with the patient and family to ensure that they maintain an optimum level of comfort and control.
Abode Healthcare accepts Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance and other forms of reimbursement. We will be happy to discuss your particular situation and to contact the patient’s insurer to ask about hospice coverage.
Anyone who has a life limiting illness and a desire for palliative rather than curative care is appropriate for hospice. Please contact our main location or your local Abode hospice to speak with someone about the hospice benefits available to you. We are happy to answer any questions you might have and to help you get the services you need.
