Hospice Care

Learning that a loved one faces a life-limiting illness can be difficult for any family. In these moments of unsurety it is important to know that there are individuals committed to providing your loved ones with the support services they need and the care and compassion they deserve. Our promise to you is that when you choose Access you will feel the difference in the care your loved ones receive.

Access Hospice Care is bringing healthcare home, wherever home is –– whether a skilled nursing facility, a family member’s place, or the patient’s home. Our hospice services allow patients to maintain their independence and dignity while making the most of every day, at home surrounded by friends and family. Because at Access, we believe that every moment matters.

WHAT IS HOSPICE CARE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Hospice care is a holistic medical program that focuses on the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well being of individuals with life-limiting illness including those with terminal illness and a life expectancy of six months or less. Hospice care also supports care givers and family members involved in the care of the patient. Our purpose is to ensure that the patient’s remaining days are lived in comfort and dignity.
Our hospice provides:

  • Specialized clinical care with focus on pain and symptom management
  • Emotional, spiritual, social and physical support
  • Home medical equipment and related medications
  • Personal Care Aides that assist with bathing, dressing, and functional mobility
  • Respite services
  • Volunteer services
  • Comprehensive bereavement support program

The Access Hospice Team includes:

  • Skilled Nurses
  • Hospice Aides
  • Social Workers
  • Chaplain
  • Trained Volunteers

WHAT DOES HOSPICE COST?

Hospice service is covered 100% by Medicaid and Medicare (for those who are eligible) and by most private health insurance companies with little, or no, out-of-pocket expense. Our highly-trained staff can assist patients, families and physicians in determining eligibility.
