You're not alone.

In the United States today, more than one in three Americans is caring for an ailing family member or friend. Many of these families are facing a serious, life-limiting illness for the first time and don't know where to turn for answers and support.

A serious illness can be overwhelming for the entire family – but that's where hospice can help. Hospice is 100% covered by Medicare for all eligible patients and is covered by most Medicaid and commercial insurance plans. Anyone can refer a patient to hospice, and the evaluation is free.
