If youâre visiting this site, itâs likely you are a patient facing a life-limiting illness or youâre a family member or friend who is trying to help someone in need. At Hospice, our purpose is to bring you help and hope however we can.
Hospice is a promise of comfort for terminally ill patients and those who love them. An innovative concept in care by skilled professionals and volunteers working in partnership with a patientâs doctor, Hospice provides physical, emotional and spiritual services and support for the whole family.
On this site, youâll find information about the many services Hospice provides as well as the many ways Hospice can support you in coping with illness or dealing with grief. Youâll find details on everything from how Hospice works to who is eligible for Hospice, who pays for Hospice, how you can get help immediately and the organizations available in your community to support you through this difficult time.
If there is anything we can do to help, please contact us through this site or call the Hospice office in your service area. All you have to do is ask. Weâll be there.
Hospice services are covered by Medicare Part A and most major Health Insurance Companies as well as New York State Medicaid.
Even though a doctor is a part of the Hospice team, you can choose to use your regular doctor, who might not be part of the hospice, to get care.
If you are eligible for Medicare, you pay no more than $5 for each prescription drug and other similar products.
