Frequently Asked Questions
Where Is Hospice Care Provided?
The majority of our patients receive care where they live, either in their home or a care facility. Care can also be provided in skilled nursing facilities when patients require more intensive symptom and/or pain management, or when families need a respite from caregiving.
Who Is Eligible for Care?
Carondelet’s hospice and palliative care is offered to people with a very limited life expectancy and whose goals for care focus on comfort.
Who Pays for Care?
Hospice is covered by Medicare and many other private insurance companies. The Carondelet mission is to provide care to all patients who are eligible for hospice care regardless of their ability to pay.
