In most cases, care is provided in the patient’s home but may also be provided in freestanding hospice facilities, hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilitiesCare can be provided to a patient, wherever it is they call home. Hospice services are available to patients with any terminal illness or of any age, religion, or race.
