Hospice Care in Skilled Nursing Facilities

Hospice care in a nursing home is an enhancement of the services and benefits already provided by that nursing facility. Hospice works with facility staff in the area of pain and symptom management, focusing attention on the relief of stress and anxiety associated with caring for terminally ill patients and their family.

To be eligible for Hospice services in a nursing home, patients must be a resident at a contracted nursing facility, have a life-limiting illness with approximately six months or less life expectancy. Residents on our Hospice program may continue under the care of the nursing home’s physician.
