Hospice Care Plan
People with life-limiting illnesses or conditions have unique needs, and so do their family members. In partnership with the patient, family, and physician, our skilled team of health care providers creates a plan of care tailored to meet the wishes and needs of each patient.
About St. Luke’s Hospice
St. Luke's Hospice is a Medicare-certified program. It’s designed to bring comfort and enhance quality of life without aggressive efforts to cure or offer life-support.
Our services are available to anyone in the later stages of a terminal illness who:
- Seeks comfort and symptom control
- Has a physician certify that hospice care is appropriate
- Has a 24-hour primary caregiver or contact person
Doctors, hospitals, nurses, social workers, family, clergy, and friends may refer someone to our hospice care. Care is provided without regard to diagnosis, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, physical disability, or ability to pay.
Services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private health insurance companies. Assistance is available to help find other options for those without health insurance coverage.
