Community Hospice Care provides services to patients in a variety of settings. Patients can receive the services of our team at home, in the hospital, in a long-term facility or other residential facility. Home is the most common and the preferred place for most patient or families, but is not always possible or even desirable for everyone. Individual patient, family and caregiver needs determine where we provide care.
Most insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, have a hospice benefit. However, with today's economy, many of our area residents do not have insurance coverage.
Funding from United Way enables us to continue to provide quality hospice services to those individuals without insurance. Community Hospice Care always has delivered quality hospice services, regardless of insurance coverage. We never have billed a patient or family for our services.
We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to United Way. Your generosity has enabled us to continue to offer hospice to our less-fortunate neighbors. And, because we strive to support our local pharmacies and medical equipment providers, those dollars go a long way in support of our local economy.
