Hospice Misconception

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to hospice care. Many people believe that a hospice referral means that the patient is imminently dying and that they should give up on their care. But, that is not the case. In fact, this is just one of the many misconceptions about hospice care.

 

Hospice care is high quality care that focuses on quality of life, symptom management and comfort. A hospice is not a place for people to simply come and die but rather a philosophy of care that focuses on each patient, individually.

 

Hospice care is 100% covered by Medicare and Medicaid and is covered by most private insurances. If you are in need of hospice care, you should not be worried about the cost.

 

Hospice care is meant for anyone with terminal or life limiting illnesses. Hospice is not only for people with a specific illness, but rather for anyone who is terminally ill.

 

When it comes to hospice care, you can be certain that you are going to receive complete care, ranging from physical treatment to spiritual treatment. You can also be assured that you are receiving treatment for your illness without being made to feel like you are just another body passing through.
