When it comes to choosing the right hospice care provider for your loved one, you'll want to find a provider that offers a full range of services such as treatments that address comfort and quality of life, pain and symptom management, and specially trained nursing and social work staff who provide compassionate care.

Another important factor to consider is cost and insurance. Hospice care is a benefit provided under Medicare Part A, Medicaid, Veterans Administration benefits, as well as most commercial insurance plans. But what if your loved one isn't covered?

Well, that's something you won't have to worry about when you choose Hudson Valley Hospice. Thanks to the generosity of the local community, financial assistance may be available to cover the cost of hospice care through the Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation.
