Can hospice care be provided in home or only in a facility?

Starting to look for a hospice to care for my mother. She has lived in her house for over 40 years and we would really prefer that she passes away at home. Is it possible for a hospice company to provide services in a residence?

end-of-life, hospice

Answered by: MySeniorCare Staff

Hospice care can be provided both in the patient's home or in a facility. Typically, as such in your case, the patient and/or their family prefer the care to take place in the home.

You should have no problem finding a hospice provider to provide these services in your mother's residence. I hope this helps, good luck!
