Masonicare Inpatient Hospice Services
Hospice care is an important end-of-life choice. Masonicare Home Health & Hospice has brought their Medicare-certified hospice program to Masonicare Health Center in Wallingford to create an enhanced inpatient hospice experience for patients and their loved ones. In the dedicated hospice section of the Acute Care Medical Unit at Masonicare Health Center, which features private rooms, a unique plan of care is designed for each patient, based on the specific needs and wishes and patients and their families.
Many insurers, such as Medicare, offer a hospice benefit specifically for individuals with a life-limiting diagnosis and will cover a brief, short-term inpatient stay under qualifying circumstances. Medical conditions that quality for this level of hospice care will be explained in detail upon inquiry.
Please note that hospice services are not just for people with life-limiting cancer diagnoses. Many non-cancer diagnoses can also qualify for coverage under hospice benefits. They include:
- Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
- Heart failure
- Renal disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Liver disease
- Respiratory disease
