Hospice Care


Hospice care is a special way of caring for a patient whose disease cannont be cured.  To be eligible, the patient must be certified by a physician to be terminally ill with a life expectancy of six months or less.  It is available as a benefit under Medicare Hospital Insurance.  Medicare beneficiaries who choose hospice care will receive support services for their terminal illness.  However, these benefits do not cover all of the services that can assist in the transitions occurring during this challenging time.

EssentialCare engages those in hospice care with a range of services aimed at ensuring the patient spends his or her last days in a rewarding, dignified manner.  Perhaps above all, EssentialCare passionately believes that everyone has a story worth telling.  Our skilled caregivers are anxious to help you and your loved one capture these moments and ensure that things are not left unsaid in the time you have remaining together.  Other services include:
