Hospice requirements

The time for hospice care is an individual decision that every patient and their family makes in consultation with their physician. Hospice care is beneficial when:

  • Your disease is worsening despite best medical treatment and you want to focus on comfort and quality life, and
  • Your doctor has told you that you have a limited life expectancy

Each person's situation is unique, so if you feel like you or a loved one may be in need of hospice care, ask your physician. Your physician is likely waiting for you to bring up the subject. In addition, you can take the initiative to call OhioHealth Hospice to explore care possibilities and have your questions answered.

Once hospice care is requested, we'll contact the patient's primary physician and make arrangements to have one of our OhioHealth Hospice team members visit and explain the details. Together, we will work a plan to achieve overall goals.
