If your patient with a life limiting illness can benefit from greater relief of symptoms, stress or side effects from treatments, NorthStar Palliative Care may be the answer. And it can be provided in tandem with curative care.
If your patient has a terminal condition, and you estimate a life expectancy of about six months or less, our expert hospice care can enable a better quality of life and often keep patients at home.
Many patients are referred to hospice care far later than they should to receive the greatest benefit. Check out the criteria for hospice eligibility along with some insights for referring sooner than you may have considered.
