Hospice Care Eligibility

Hospice care can be provided to those who have been diagnosed with a limited life expectancy. Our care is not just for patients with cancer or patients with a terminal illness. Medicare recognizes the need to provide care for those individuals with a general decline in health as they progress in their final journey of life.

Some signs of general decline are:

  • Eating less
  • Weight loss
  • Falls
  • Confusion and forgetfulness
  • Increased weakness
  • Needs more help with personal care
  • Sleeping more
  • Less active

Other diseases include Congestive Heart Failure, Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Diabetes, Cancer and Parkinson’s Disease.
