Who is eligible?

Hospice services are an option when curative measures are no longer available or desired.  Of course, determining life expectancy – even during the course of a serious illness – may be difficult.  Specific medical criteria serve as a guideline, but physicians are encouraged to consider all health problems and related factors when determining a patient’s eligibility for hospice.

 

Home Hospice offers care to any Grayson, Cooke or Fannin County resident of any age who is eligible due to a limited life expectancy, regardless of their ability to pay for services.  If you, a family member, or friend have a serious or terminal illness, please talk with your physician about hospice eligibility.Call our office to discuss your specific situation to see if hospice care is a good choice for you – 903-868-9315.
