If you or a loved one is living with a terminal condition, we deliver assistance and peace of mind to you — and your family — through contact with our social workers and volunteers
Hope works with you, your family and your physician to determine what care and services we can offer to meet your needs. Patients who have been discharged from hospice but are still living with a chronic life-limiting illness are eligible for Hope’s Advanced Illness Care (AIC) program. This free program keeps patients connected to Hope until they meet the Medicare requirements for hospice care.
If you or a loved one is living with a terminal condition, we deliver assistance and peace of mind to you — and your family — through contact with our social workers and volunteers.
Participation in our AIC program requires an order from a physician indicating the patient has a terminal condition. You and your family benefit because you remain connected to the Hope care team:
If patients feel their health is declining, a Hope nurse can evaluate the patient to determine if they are eligible for hospice care.
AIC families are also welcome to attend Hope’s education series that provides resources and support to caregivers of family members with life-limiting or disabling conditions. Learn more about the Family Caregiver Education Series, which is provided at no cost to both our client families and the public in our service area. Several classes are dedicated to dementia-related care.
