Choosing a Hospice

Choosing a hospice is a very important decision. While all hospice providers may have the same basic philosophy of care, each are different in some way. Hospice providers are very willing to answer questions and assist in determining which hospice can best meet the needs of you and your family.

All Floridians have access to hospice. When searching for a provider, it is not important that the hospice administrative office be located near your home, because the hospice staff and volunteers travel to your place of residence. However, you do want to choose a hospice program that serves your county.

Steps to help you choose the right hospice for you:

1. Find a hospice in your area. Visit our Find-a-Provider directory to locate a hospice near you.

2. Call the providers in your area and use the questionnaire sheet as a guide when asking questions.

If you discover that you are not eligible for hospice, consider asking your local hospice these questions:

  1. What community resources are available to me?
  2. What is an indication I’ll be ready for hospice in the future?
