A timely hospice referral can make all the difference for the patient and family
Health Care Provider
Once a referral is received...a hospice nurse will meet the patient within 24-hours for an assessment to determine hospice eligibility. Upon hospice admission, the patient is provided a multitude of resources and support with immediate communication for care planning and scheduling. The Attending Physician remains as the patient’s primary physician and will work with the Homestead team to review care plans and discuss conditions and prognosis. As the Attending Physician, you are in a unique position to provide end-of-life care, which includes recognizing the need for and recommending hospice care when appropriate.
"We serve from a place of gratitude and grateful for all who serve with us"~Mallie Sharafat, CEO Homestead Hospice
