Hospice is a unique program aimed at supporting anyone with a life-limiting illness who could benefit from additional support through their end-of-life journey. Hospice services are offered in nursing facilities, comfort care homes, local hospitals and even in patients’ homes. The Livingston County Hospice program is dedicated to providing comfort and improving quality of life, in addition to offering support to both the patient and their family. The end of a life is a unique journey, one that requires a practiced blend of compassion and comfort that Livingston County Hospice is proud to offer.
Patients are eligible for Hospice care when the focus of care changes from aggressive treatments to comfort measures and management of symptoms. Talk to your doctor about the benefits of Hospice care. Admission to Hospice is based on need, meaning services are never denied because of inability to pay.
