Helpful Patient Resources
Hospice and Palliative Care
Difficult health matters come with unfamiliar, and many times complex, terrain. We believe you deserve better. AccentCare’s credibility, expertise, and dedicated Hospice and Palliative care teams allow us to carry some of that burden for you. In moments when you need guidance and support the most, we are there.
We encourage awareness and respect for diversity in our staff, and we support health equity through outreach and education in traditionally underserved communities.
We often see eligible patients referred to Accentcare with only days or hours left to live, limiting the full usefulness of the holistic care the hospice interdisciplinary team can provide to them and their families.
Medicare, Medicaid and the majority of private insurance plans have a hospice benefit that covers costs associated with hospice care. In many cases AccentCare is able to advocate for our patients and secure insurance coverage on a case-by-case basis. Our team can help you navigate this process and will keep you informed every step of the way.
Staff at our call center are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including on holidays. It’s important that our patients and families can always get in touch with us right away.
As you or your loved one’s condition changes, AccentCare’s registered dietitians can help answer any of the questions or concerns you may have about nutrition.
