When you hire an individual or company to come onto your property or into your home, you take on a certain amount of risk, as does the person hired. See the Action Guide for questions to ask when hiring an in-home service.
In-home hospice allows terminally ill patients to spend their last days in familiar surroundings. If the patient is enrolled in Medicare, choose a Medicare-approved hospice provider.

Hospice is available to nursing home residents and hospital patients. Some nursing homes offer hospice by contract with a home health care agency; or the resident or family may contact an agency themselves. Ask nursing home staff about arrangements. Hospice patients who meet criteria can be admitted to a hospital transitional care unit, on doctor’s orders, if care of a dying patient is more than family can manage.
