FAQ

About Hospice

Hospice is a gift of caring for those you love. It is also specialized care for people on life’s final journey, emphasizing comfort, dignity and pain control.

Hospice is paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, Private Insurance or Private Pay. At Journey Hospice we assess patients based on need and not financial status.

Of course! Journey Hospice is recognized by all relevant government agencies. They are members of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, and comply with all NHPCO principles.

Family Support

By contacting your local Journey Hospice location.

Journey Hospice patients may receive care wherever they reside, including residence, nursing facilities, inpatient facilities, assisted living facilities and family member’s homes.

Not at all. Many patients are able to continue attending church, visiting relatives, and even traveling out of town.

Patients returning to a hospital or nursing home can continue to receive care.

Physician Referrals

Early referrals enable hospice to be more effective and efficient. The sooner a patient receives hospice service, the more the patient and family benefits.

Patients have the right to see their own physicians whenever they feel it is necessary.
