What is Hospice Care?

Dedicated to ensuring the patient’s last few months,

  • Medication for symptom control or pain relief
  • Medical equipment like wheelchairs or walkers and medical supplies like bandages and catheters
  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Speech-language pathology services
  • Dietary counseling
  • Any other Medicare-covered services needed to manage pain and other symptoms related to the terminal illness, as recommended by the hospice team.
  • Short-term inpatient care (e.g., when adequate pain and symptom management cannot be achieved in the home setting)
