Admissions




Affinis Hospice is honored to provide comfort and care to terminally ill patients.

The general guidelines for hospice admission include:


  • An individual diagnosed with an illness that, if it runs its normal course as determined by the individual’s physician, has a prognosis of six months or less. 
  • An individual who, along with their physician, has elected a palliative care approach to ease suffering and illness-related symptoms, and no longer plans to seek aggressive treatment for the illness.
       
Hospice is not only for people diagnosed with cancer; many other diagnoses also qualify an individual
for hospice care, including:


  • End Stage Liver Disease
  • End Stage Pulmonary Disease
  • End Stage Alzheimers Disease
  • Adult Failure to Thrive
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  • End Stage Cardiac Disease
  • End Stage Renal Disease
  • Stroke and/or Coma
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
      
If you know someone with one of the above-listed diagnoses and have noticed them exhibiting any of the following, he or she may qualify to receive the benefits of hospice care:

  • Decline or decrease in activities of daily living
  • Weight loss or decreased appetite
  • Changes in cognitive abilities
  • Overall general decline in condition
  • Worsening of symptoms or lack of response to treatments
