What Is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is much more than just the care at the end of life. Hospice care is a beneficial and crucial solution for individuals and their family members who are facing the complexities of a serious illness. Patients with a short life expectancy need not just the right medication, but also emotional and spiritual care to address fears and anxiety. They need the education to know what to expect and how to plan for the future. Amari Hospice Care offers full-scope services for patients and their loved ones.
When Is the Right Time for Hospice Care?
It is never easy to know when the right time for hospice care is. It is a personal decision for each individual and their family. Hospice care can benefit anyone who has:
- A terminal illness with a prognosis of months, weeks, or days rather than years.
- Chosen comfort care rather than treatment-focused care
- Had multiple hospital stays in the past six months
- Experienced decreased appetite or significant weight loss
Where Is Hospice Care Provided?

- In your home
- In assisted living centers
- In board and care facilities
- In long-term care communities
- In skilled nursing facilities
How Is Hospice Paid for?
Hospice care is an inclusive Medicare Part A benefit—meaning all services related to terminal illnesses are covered up to 100%. Hospice care is also covered by Medicaid and most employer-provided healthcare plans. For individuals enrolled in Medicare, hospice care is a benefit that they are entitled to have.
The Hospice Medicare Benefit completely covers the cost of all hospice services, medical equipment, supplies, and medications related to the hospice diagnosis as long as these items are included in the hospice plan of care.
