AseraCare Hospice Programs

What is Hospice? Asera Care HospiceOur hospice program consists of both palliative and supportive services that provide physical, psychological, social and spiritual care for terminally ill persons and their families. It is a comprehensive, medically directed, team-oriented program that accentuates pain control and symptom management for patients who no longer respond to routine aggressive medical care.

Each patient has individual needs, and our team looks at the whole person, not just the physical manifestations of the disease process. It is a comprehensive, medically directed, team-oriented program that accentuates pain control and symptom management for patients who no longer respond to routine aggressive medical care. The focus of hospice care is palliative rather than curative in nature.

If you are confined to the home but need ongoing medical care, our home health staff can design a comprehensive healthcare program to meet your needs. And doctor-prescribed hospice care is a compassionate alternative for terminally ill patients and their families.

Paying for Hospice

Hospice care is a benefit under Medicare, Medicaid (in some states) and many private insurance companies. As such, the patient or family will see cost savings on certain medications and equipment related to the terminal illness. Regardless of the family's ability to pay for hospice, no patient is ever denied services because of an inability to pay for them.Hospice Care Austin

This is also a common misconception about hospice care. It is not necessary for Hospice patients to have signed a DNR/DNI order prior to admission. The hospice team will continue to educate the patient and/or provide them resources regarding advance directives and end-of-life decisions.
