Slogan: Life Enhancing Care Since 1995

Hospice Services

Through hospice services, LifeCare delivers in-home, healthcare services focusing on dignity and quality of life. LifeCare professionals ease symptoms associated with life-limiting illnesses. Most patients can attain an acceptable level of comfort through medications, counseling, and therapies. With LifeCare, your family doctor still directs your medical treatment, and we follow your instructions and the instructions of your doctor(s). Caring for a loved-one at the end of a long illness can be trying. Nights, in particular, can be lonely and frightening. Our hospice nurses are on-call 24 / 7 to support patients and their caregivers. If you or a loved-one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness (at any stage), please contact LifeCare to begin learning about hospice and palliative services.

Financial Considerations:

Because LifeCare is a Medicare-certified hospice provider, Medicare pays 100% of allowable charges from LifeCare. The hospice program is a strong benefit encompassing the charges of many services - with no cost sharing to the family. The rules, however, are somewhat open to interpretation, so you may find that some providers provide more service than others. The LifeCare hospice program pays 100% for:

  • All nursing, therapy, aide, and social worker service
  • All medications related to the hospice diagnosis
  • All supplies related to the hospice diagnosis
  • All equipment related to the hospice diagnosis (hospital beds, bedside commode, etc)

If you or someone you care about could benefit from Home Health or Hospice, please contact LifeCare today.
