Encompassing Mind, Body and Spirit

Filed under: Hospice,senior living guide — seniorlivingguide @ 12:02 pm

Embracing physical, emotional and spiritual needs is what hospice is about. At the end-of-life, the patient and their family have many questions, and want honesty, heartfelt kindness and sound medical advice. That’s why thousands of patients count on Bon Secours Hospice. However, many people don’t know that hospice is available or what is involved.

Who qualifies for hospice?
Anyone who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or any illness where a cure is not currently possible.

What services are provided by hospice?
• Home visits by specially trained hospice nurses
• Pain management and symptom control
• Personal hygiene care from certified nursing assistants
• All medications related to the terminal diagnosis
• All specialized therapies required for the terminal diagnosis
• All durable medical equipment related to the terminal diagnosis
• Psychosocial, spiritual and grief support services

Who pays for hospice?
Hospice is a benefit under Medicare, Medicaid and many insurances. Bon Secours provides services regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.

How long is hospice care provided?
Generally, hospice care is offered when a physician certifies that a patient has a life expectancy of six months or less. However, care can be extended if the patient’s condition warrants.

How do I request hospice services?
You can ask your doctor to make a referral or call Bon Secours Hospice at (757) 889-HOME (4663).

Providing compassionate care since 1983, Bon Secours staff builds a close relationship with each family and patient based on trust, respect and an appreciation for each individual’s inherent dignity. We are about people – patients and families – and doing all we can to provide them with comfort, strength and support when it is needed most.
