Do you or a loved one meet any of the criteria below? If so, hospice services may be right for you.

The patient’s condition is life limiting (with life expectancy of six months or less) and the patient and/or family is aware of this determination.

The patient and/or family have elected treatment goals directed toward comfort and quality of life (palliative care) rather than cure of the underlying disease (curative care).

Hospice care is not limited to cancer patients, but applies to any illness a physician feels limits the patient to a life expectancy of six months or less. Some non-cancerous illnesses may include: 
     Heart disease – Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
     Pulmonary disease – COPD
     CVA and coma
     Dementia
     Renal disease
     HIV / AIDS
     Liver disease
     Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
     Failure to thrive
     Debility unspecified

For more information, please call: (757) 553-3000 or 1-800-HOMECARE.
