Hospice Eligibility

How do I know if my loved one is eligible for Hospice of Summa?

Patients who are eligible for hospice care are:

  • Patients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and have a life expectancy of months rather than years
  • Patients that can no longer benefit from curative care and have agreed to a comfort-oriented philosophy of treatment
  • Patients and families that have agreed to care that is primarily home-based. "Home" may include the patient's home, a caregivers home or residential care facility (nursing home)

At Summa, Hospice isn't a place - it's a concept of care. Our team is always willing and available to talk to you about your specific situation and how we can help. 

New home care patients can call toll-free (888) 903-1475 to discuss your options or request a call from one of our specialists.
