Signing up with hospice for the first time can be a daunting task, but it’s far simpler than it first appears. In this post I’ll break down the basics on what you’ll encounter.
Generally the first step is picking a hospice. Reading up online and choosing one that you like will take you far. Usually your doctor will suggest a hospice, but it is beneficial take a look at the options in your area. You are always free to sign up with any hospice and not obligated in any way to pick a certain one.
Once a hospice is chosen you will then give them a call. Most questions can be answered over the phone (like how to pay for it, what services the specific hospice provides, or whether they you qualify). At the end of the call a consultation will be scheduled for a representative to come out to visit you and possibly set up an admission.
These are the first steps to getting hospice and a brief intro into the topic. If you or a loved one wish to sign up for hospice or would like to learn more give us a call or fill out our request form.
