Who is Eligible for Hospice?

Admission to our hospice program is made upon the recommendation of your physician and is based upon your needs. Normally, appropriate candidates for hospice are patients:

  • With a life expectancy of 6 months or less if the illness runs its normal course

  • Who desire comfort care or are no longer seeking cure

  • Who want to stay at home as long as possible

 

On admission, our nurse will visit you or your family to discuss hospice services, assess your immediate needs and recommend a plan of care. A Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order and advance directives are not required for admission to Adya Hospice & Palliative Care services.

 

If we cannot meet your needs, either directly by our hospice or indirectly through service agreements with other providers, we will not admit you or will not continue to provide services to you.
