What is Hospice?
“Hospice” dates back hundreds of years when it referred to a place of shelter for weary and ill travelers on a long journey. Today, there are thousands of hospice and hospice care programs in the United States. The objective of the program is to provide persons with advanced life limiting illnesses and their families’ supportive care by an interdisciplinary team in their homes, nursing homes, and inpatient hospices. VIP Hospice serves patients in the following counties: Blair, Bedford, Huntingdon, Cambria and Centre. Hospice services require a doctor’s referral and are typically covered by Medicare and Private Health Insurance.
