There's no place like home.
The patient, family and/or physician can initiate hospice information / referral call or visit as soon as a terminal disease is diagnosed. When the patient would like to move from a treatment plan focused on curing the disease to a plan focused on providing comfort and relief, they may choose in-home hospice care. At this point, the local hospice workers will meet with the patient's personal physician, the patient and the family to discuss available services and expectations, and to develop a plan of care designed specifically for the patient and family needs.
The patient, family or physician can call (360) 733-5877 to ask for hospice information or admission.
