The majority of hospice care is provided in the home setting with a focus on pain and symptoms management, coordination of care and communication. The home setting is anywhere the patient lives - the family home, adult care home, nursing home, independet living facility, etc.
Under home hospice, a family member or close friend serves as your primary caregiver and is responsible for providing or overseeing most of your care. Our care team of professionals and volunteers, including doctors, nurses, home health aides, spiritual counselors and volunteers, works with you and your caregivers to develop a plan tailored to meet the unique needs of your situation.
Members of your TMC Hospice care team will meet regularly with you and your caregivers to offer education, evaluate your needs, provide medical services and offer assistance with personal care.
Home hospice services are available both on a scheduled and emergency basis on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Hospice is covered by Medicare and most other insurance companies. For questions or more information, contact us.
