Entering Our Program
To begin care with Hospice of the Foothills, the following are needed:
- Your personal primary care physician and our medical director both certify that you have a prognosis of six months or less, if the illness runs its usual course.
- Your goals for care focus on comfort and quality of life rather than on cure of your illness.
Hospice services are not limited to a six-month time period. You will continue to receive hospice services beyond six months if the illness is still present and considered “terminal,” and your treatment goals continue to focus primarily on comfort rather than cure.
Hospice of the Foothills representatives are available to answer questions and to see if hospice care is the right choice for you or a loved one.
