Hospice is More Than What you Think
ABC Hospice provides much more than top medical care. Nurses, volunteers and all other members of the ABC Hospice family offer a warm heart and helping hands to each and every patient and family.
Hospice is a special concept of care designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death.
ABC Hospice staff offers a specialized knowledge of medical care, including pain management. Our goal is to provide care that improves the quality of a patient's last days by extending a hand of compassion.
ABC Hospice deals with the emotional, social, and spiritual impact a terminal illness has on patients and the patients family members. When a patient passes away, we continue to provide nurturing support to their family members. Being diagnosed with a terminal illness is devastating. It’s a journey no one should take alone. When someone faces a life-ending illness, the entire family is affected. ABC Hospice takes this journey with our patients and family members each step of the way.
Patients typically benefit from Hospice care when they have one of the following diagnosis:
- Advanced Cancer
- Adult Failure to Thrive Syndrome
- End-Stage Alzheimer's Disease
- Heart Disease
- Liver Disease
- Neurological Disorders
- Renal Disease
- Stroke & Coma
Hospice care is a covered benefit under Medicare for patients with a prognosis of six months or less. A patient can remain in hospice care beyond six months if a physician re-certifies that the patient is terminally ill.
