People whose illnesses are not curable and who have a limited life expectancy. They may no longer want or are unable to receive curative treatment. Hospice is available to people with cancer, heart disease, lung disease, or any other life limiting condition. Patients must live in the service area and have approval of a doctor who will manage their medical care. It is also necessary to have a primary caregiver (family member or friend) who is willing to manage and provide the care along with the help of the hospice team.
