Who can receive hospice care?
Hospice care eligibility is determined if your doctor and the hospice medical director certify that you have a life-limiting illness, and if the disease runs its normal course, death may be expected in 6 months or less.
At times, a disease may not run its normal course, and patients may be on hospice services for more than 6 months. Hospice care provides comfort and support for patients with all illnesses, including cancer, heart, lung, vascular, kidney, and neuromuscular diseases, all types of dementia, and AIDS.
