What is Hospice Care?

Elevation Hospice in Utah is dedicated to ensuring the patient’s last few months, weeks, or days are lived in comfort and dignity.

Hospice care is a type of medical care that is designed to provide comfort and support to individuals who are facing a life-limiting illness. The focus of hospice care is on improving the quality of life for both the patient and their loved ones, rather than on curing the illness. Hospice care is typically provided by a team of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, social workers, and spiritual advisors, who work together to provide compassionate care and support to patients and their families.

At home hospice services include:

  • Time and services of the care team, including visits to the patient’s location by the hospice physician, nurse, medical social worker, home health aide, and chaplain/spiritual adviser
  • 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)
  • Short-term respite care (e.g., temporary relief from caregiving to avoid or address “caregiver burnout”)
  • Grief and loss counseling for the patient and loved ones
