Hospice care helps you and your loved ones make the most of your remaining days, wherever you choose to live them.
Benefits of Hospice Care
Hospice care allows you to live out your life with dignity and comfort. You’ll receive patient- and family-centered care that addresses physical, spiritual, emotional, and practical needs.
Hospice is not about giving up hope, but about focusing on how you wish to live the rest of your life. With the help of your loved ones and your ThedaCare hospice team, you’ll be able to concentrate your energy on living each day as fully as possible.
ThedaCare’s locally based hospice care teams have special training in end-of-life care. They work with your primary caregivers to provide the services you need to remain comfortable and pain-free. Learn about our hospice care teams
ThedaCare At Home offers hospice services throughout Wisconsin’s Fox Valley region. You can receive hospice care in a private home (yours or a loved one’s), an apartment or assisted living unit, or a skilled nursing facility (nursing home). You can also choose to receive hospice care in one of ThedaCare’s two residential hospices. Learn about your hospice care options
Admission to Hospice Care
You can choose hospice care if your doctor certifies that your life expectancy is six months or less, and you have decided to stop aggressive treatment focused on finding a cure.
Deciding when to enter hospice care is a personal choice. The earlier hospice services begin, the more time you will have to experience the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of hospice care. For more information or to request hospice services, call 920-969-0919 or 800-984-5554.
Paying for Hospice Care
Most hospice services are covered by insurance, but coverage can vary depending on your insurance provider, the services you receive, and where you receive the services. We will research your insurance coverage prior to admission and discuss care and financial options with you and your family. The ThedaCare Hospice Foundation may be able to help you with costs not covered by insurance.
