In most cases, patients cared for by Community Hospice leave the hospital to return to their own homes, where they can have the best possible quality of life, surrounded by the people and things they love. Hospice staff and volunteers visit patients at home, providing outstanding medical and palliative care to the patients, as well as advice, guidance and support to family members. Hospice care is also available to CMH patients whose health situation requires them to remain at Columbia Memorial. Wherever a patient is, whenever a family needs help, a hospice team member is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
The cost of hospice is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. If you think someone you love could benefit from the services of Community Hospice, talk to your doctor, a Columbia Memorial staff member or call Community Hospice directly at (518) 724-0242.
