Calvary Hospital Hospice

Calvary Hospital Hospice is a Medicare-certified Hospice program, which provides an interdisciplinary care team for patients with a
terminal prognosis for all end-stage diseases. Calvary Hospital Hospice embraces and implements the basic assumptions of the hospice concept, including the following:

Hospice provides palliative medical care, treating the physical, emotional and spiritual pain of the patient and family.
Hospice treats the patient and loved ones together as a whole unit of care and offers bereavement counseling for surviving caregivers after the patient's death.
Hospice patients remain in the familiar, comforting surroundings of home, whether it's a private residence, nursing home, hospital or an assisted living facility.
Hospice care provides the following four levels of care: routine care, general inpatient care (if needed), continuous care (during a crisis), and respite care.
