Hospice Admission Criteria

Admission to the Hospice program is appropriate when:

  • The patient and family consent to Hospice Care Services.
  • The patient has a primary caregiver who is willing and able to assume or arrange for 24-hour responsibility for the patient. The program supports, but does not take over for, family members.
  • The patient and family agree to a treatment plan based on providing care and comfort rather than cure.
