Anyone can make a referral to Hospice Care Plus. It’s as simple as calling our central office at 859-986-1500 or 800-806-5492.
If you believe a loved one may benefit from hospice care, call as soon as possible. The earlier hospice is involved in care, the better the quality of life and care for both patient and family.
When you call, we’ll schedule a visit with you to share information and answer questions. If you wish, and if the hospice nurse finds that your loved one is appropriate for hospice care, we can admit him or her to the program quickly.
We will ask for your physician’s name, so we can contact him or her to request an order for hospice care. Care begins once the physician agrees to the order for hospice.
There are many questions you may have about hospice care–both home hospice care, and inpatient hospice care at the Compassionate Care Center. We suggest taking a few moments to review the Frequently Asked Questions on our website, as well as those on the website of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. It’s a great place to start. You are also welcome to call and ask us questions anytime. We’re happy to take all the time you need to feel confident about your decision.
