Who is Eligible?
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" many 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.
