What is hospice?
Guardian Angel Hospice exists in the belief that through the care we provide, patients can remain as comfortable as possible. We will focus on the easing of pain and other symptoms.
How do I know if I am eligible for hospice care?
How do I get more information about hospice care?
Please do not hesitate to contact our office at 504-737-2244 should you have any questions or need any information. We would be happy to talk/meet with you, at your request, to discuss Hospice at any time.
Guardian Angel Hospice can mail/deliver, to you, the Medicare Hospice Benefits booklet (issues by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) to help you understand what hospice is and what services are covered/provided by hospice.
Ask your physician.
