Hope works closely with you, your patients, and their family members to deliver the quality care they deserve. Hope is available 24/7 for referrals and patient care.
We are responsive to your needs and the urgent needs of your patients, with availability after hours and on weekends. Recommending hospice care gives your patients an important choice when dealing with end-of-life care. A hospice referral is rarely premature. The earlier patients begin hospice care, the sooner they — and their families — will benefit.
In fact, hospice care is most beneficial over a period of months, yet most hospice patients die within a month of referral. This is due, in part, because patients and caregivers are reluctant to pursue hospice before death is imminent.
An early referral provides patients with extra attention and focused hospice care to manage pain and discomfort. It also offers your patients and their families a vital opportunity to receive spiritual care, identify resources with the help of our social workers, deal with loss, and say goodbye.
Patients who are not yet eligible for hospice services can remain connected to Hope through our social workers and volunteers. Learn more about the Advanced Illness Care program here.
