Can I be cared for by hospice if I reside in a nursing facility or other type of long-term care facility?
Hospice services can be provided to a terminally ill person wherever they live. This means a patient living in a nursing facility or long-term care facility can receive specialized visits from hospice nurses, home health aides, chaplains, social workers, and volunteers, in addition to other care and services provided by the nursing facility. The hospice and the nursing home will have a written agreement in place in order for the hospice to serve residents of the facility.
At Hospice of Southwest Ohio we offer a variety of hospice care options based on your individual needs. From in-home primary care to palliative care services, you can be confident the team as Hospice of Southwest Ohio will take great care of your loved one.
