questions Here to help you understand hospice

What is hospice?

Hospice is a type of care for people who are terminally ill. It focuses on pain relief and symptom management. Instead of trying to cure disease, hospice provides comfort and support for emotional or spiritual end-of-life issues. Hospice focuses on giving patients and their loved ones meaningful time together.

Who is hospice for?

Hospice is for someone with a terminal illness who can no longer benefit from treatment or has been given a prognosis of living six months or less. Hospice specializes in easing pain, discomfort, and distress on all levels.

How do I refer a patient?

Call us 24/7 at 1-888-868-1957 or fill out this form. After the initial hospice patient referral, an AseraCare team member will meet with the patient and caregiver to provide an overview of our programs and services.

What is the RN call center?

It is a call center trained to respond to your calls outside normal business hours staffed with AseraCare registered nurses, licensed in all states served. The call center is located at our office in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Give us a call at 1-888-868-1957.

What are the greatest rewards working in hospice?

The greatest reward is watching the evolution of a family through the end-of-life journey. On day one, they struggle with a terminal diagnosis for their loved one, resistant to any comfort measures and any education about what happens at end of life. And then you watch them walk the path and see their minds and hearts change and grow in this process.

What specific training, certifications, or experience do nurses need to work in hospice?

For certifications, a valid nursing license is required in the state you want to work in.
