Is Your Loved One Eligible for Summa Health Hospice?
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, caregivers home or residential care facility (nursing home)
