What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is a type of health care that focuses on providing pain management and medical care to patients as they enter the last phase of their life. Hospice care focuses on treating the person and their symptoms instead of treating their disease.
A team of medical professionals will evaluate and provide the care your loved one needs throughout their time in hospice. The medical team works with your family and loved one to create a custom care plan, ensuring the patient receives the kind of care they want. Medications and treatment focus on keeping the patient comfortable by alleviating their symptoms.
Our hospice team delivers special services to make the end of a patient’s life more comfortable that include:
- Music therapy
- Aroma and reiki therapies
These services are provided by board certified therapists trained in safe and effective physical and emotional relief.
How Palliative Care is Different
Palliative care brings the services of hospice to a larger population. You don’t have to be facing a terminal diagnosis to receive palliative care. The goal of palliative care is to provide pain management and compassionate care to patients at earlier stages in their illnesses.
Continuum Care of Florida contracts with most insurance companies to cover the costs associated with palliative care or hospice care. We accept Medicare and many commonly held private insurances such as:
- All Medicare and Medicare replacement and HMO products
- FL BCBS
- All Medicaid products and HMOs
- Humana LTC
