Hospice is a gift – it gives people who are facing a life-limiting illness the freedom to live all the days of their lives by offering comfort, dignity, quality of life and time. Hospice care is 100% covered by Medicare, as well as by most Medicaid and commercial insurances.
Amedisys hospice care sets the gold standard in health care for helping people die peacefully and comfortably when facing terminal illness or a life-limiting injury. Patients receive high-quality, compassionate care from a diverse team of professionals that includes a physician, nurse, social worker, chaplain, bereavement counselor, hospice aide and volunteers.
At Amedisys, every patient receives a personalized care plan that is based on their goals, needs and desires. Our hospice clinicians will ask what really matters to the patient and family, and those items will be included in their individual plan of care. Care plans may include medical care, pain and symptom management, and emotional and spiritual support. We also support families and caregivers, so they can give their aging parent or loved one the best quality of life possible as they near the end of their life.
The hospice team is specially trained to bring comfort and dignity to every patient’s end-of-life care. Hospice team members schedule regular visits and are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year long.
