Many people think that hospice is just for those with cancer, however; hospice serves any patient who is clinically eligible for the benefit, including, but not limited to, people living with Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, COPD, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and Cancer. Eligibility is defined as a life expectancy of six months or less if the illness runs its normal course.

Every patient is unique, and every disease presents differently. While the following signs alone do not guarantee hospice eligibility, they are the most common indicators that an individual may need hospice care.
At Heart of Hospice, our mission is to serve all hospice eligible patients the way they desire to be served. We will not ask you to give up hope, your doctor, or comforting treatments, but rather, our entire care team is ready to work with you to develop a plan of care that comforts you and honors your goals upon admission. This plan of care is not fixed and can easily change as your needs change.
