Debunking misconceptions about hospice
- Hospice is not just for the last few days or weeks of life. You or your loved one and your family should ask your doctor whether a curative treatment will work and what impact it will have on you or your family member.
- Hospice isn’t a “place” — it’s a type of care. Hospice care is typically delivered in the patient’s own home, in Assisted Living or in Skilled Nursing.
- The patient need not be homebound to receive hospice care — the goal is to remain as independent as possible.
- Hospice isn’t a financial burden — services are covered by Medicare Part A, Medicaid, and many private insurance providers.
- Hospice won’t shorten life — it seeks to improve the patient’s quality of life and allow dying to take place naturally and without pain.
