Ready to Start Hospice?

We are here to help. Below are easy-to-follow steps to get started.
Jen – Referral Center Specialist

– Before you make the phone call…

  • Full name of the patient
  • Date of birth
  • Primary doctor’s name
  • Patient’s health insurance information
  • Permission to review medical records

When you call to make a referral, whether it’s for a loved one or yourself, you will need to provide the information listed above.

– Call (360) 814-5550

Tell the person who answers the phone, “We are ready for hospice care.”

– What happens next?

Once our team of experts has gathered the information needed, an informational visit will be scheduled.

– Informational Visit

During a 30-minute conversation, we will share what our team of experts will provide, what to expect while in hospice care, how hospice is paid for by your insurance, and we will obtain informed consent. After this conversation, you will receive a call to schedule an admission visit.

– Admission Visit

The purpose of the admission visit is to assess the immediate needs of the patient and loved ones, and to ensure the patient meets the medical criteria for hospice care. These needs may include but are not limited to:

  • Medications and medication teaching to help with comfort
  • Emotional and spiritual needs
  • Medical equipment like oxygen or a hospital bed
  • Medical supplies to assist with care wherever the patient calls home
