Video Highlights

  • Receive care in a variety of settings

A benefit under Medicare, hospice care is a unique treatment that can bring much comfort to the terminally ill and their families during the final stages of an illness. As Elinor Ginzler, Director of Livable Communities, explains, hospice brings together your loved one’s care team, including doctors, nurses, social workers, clergy and spiritual advisors, in the setting of their choosing to provide end-of-life care. Often, this setting is home, where your loved one can live out his or her last days in familiar surroundings and comforted by the memories they hold most dear.
