Hospice Overview

Here we have an overview of Hospice services. Speak with your Care Advocate regarding your specific needs.

Hospice care is defined as a type of care and philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a chronically ill, terminally ill or seriously ill patient’s pain and symptoms, and attending to their emotional and spiritual needs. In short, it is end of life care that focuses on keeping the patient as calm and comfortable as possible.

When a physician makes a referral to hospice it is because they believe that the prognosis for the underlying condition, untreated, is a life expectancy of six months or less.

Typically, but not always, the hospice agency takes over all medical care for the patient. Some benefits of hospice services are:

  • All medications covered (no co-pays)
  • 2-3 CNA visits per week to assist with bathing and other care needs
  • 1-2 Nurse visits per week to set and review care plans
  • 24/7 response to patient medical needs
  • Providing durable medical equipment and supplies
  • Caregiver respite services
  • Providing counseling and Chaplin services
  • No out of pocket costs (a Medicare benefit)

For those who need hospice service, the service is truly a blessing for the patient and their family. Because hospice is such an important resource for those that need it, it is important to pick the right provider. With 185 licensed hospice providers in Arizona it’s not an easy task picking the best provider. Some considerations when selecting a hospice provider are:

  • Do they service your area
  • Do they accept your insurance
  • Will they cover ALL medications
  • Will they provide ALL requested equipment
  • Frequency of CNA and Nurse visits
  • CMS survey results
  • AZDHS survey results
  • Other families experiences with the provider

If you are considering Hospice services your Care Advocate can provide you with a list of options and assist you in picking the best hospice provider in your area.

I could not be happier with the services provided by CareWise. Genevieve was incredibly professional and kind during the process of finding a home that could give the attention necessary for my brothers needs. Just having someone who would LISTEN to our needs took so much pressure off.

PATRICIA STEVENS

Patrick and Genevieve have worked tirelessly and with great expertise to help me find and vet the right facility for my mother. They have a broad and deep knowledge of the facilities in the greater Scottsdale area and have helped me with hundreds of details and important information about each of the choices I reviewed.

KRISTEN WALSTEDT

My elderly brother needed a new living arrangement after he convalesced following a hospital stay. My nephew connected with Patrick and Genevieve through the hospital and we could not have found the perfect place for my brother without them. There are so many options in the Phoenix area that none of us had the time to figure out what place would be best for him. The experience was great and they are both very caring and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them if a family was in need of finding the perfect place for a family member.
