Hospice Care

What is it? Am I eligible? What services? How do I decide? What do others say?
Hospice Care

Hospice Care is comfort care provided to you and your family if you have a terminal condition, with less than 6 months to live, and are no longer seeking treatment other than palliative care. Hospice Care can be provided at home, in an outpatient clinic or in an inpatient setting.

Hospice Care for Veterans
Hospice is a benefit that the VA offers to qualified Veterans who are in the final phase of their lives, typically six months or less. This multi-disciplinary team approach helps Veterans live fully until they die. The VA also works very closely with community and home hospice agencies to provide care in the home.
