Many people have questions about hospice and who to call. There is a misconception that Hospice is only for Cancer patients. Those that are eligible for hospice care if they have 6 months or less to live (some insurers or state Medicaid agencies cover hospice for a full year). Unfortunately, most people don't receive hospice care until the final weeks or even days of life, possibly missing out on months of helpful care and quality time. Sometimes doctors work with certain hospice programs and they tell you to call certain hospice programs. This can lead to longer times for Nurses and helpers to get to you. Below is a list of local Hospice programs.
If you are unsure about who to call just reach out and ask for help.... It's that easy.
A personal crisis in your family — like a terminal or life-threatening illness — can leave you feeling alone in making important decisions and wishing you had someone to help you understand what lies ahead. For 40 years, Hospice of Cincinnati has helped families create the best possible and most meaningful end-of-life experience.
We provide compassionate care for those with life-limiting health conditions and incurable illnesses.
The main focus of hospice care is to relieve pain for those in the last six months of life. Hospice care focuses on comfort, rather than a cure.
