Tabitha Hospice | A Collaboration with Immanuel is accredited by Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) for compliance with a comprehensive set of national standards.

ACHC Accreditation Seal

Though it may seem difficult to know when it’s the right time for hospice care, anyone with a life-limiting illness or condition and a prognosis of six months or less to live is eligible.

There are signs to look for that may indicate the compassionate care of hospice services should be considered:

  • Increased assistance needed with activities of daily living, including walking, dressing and bathing
  • Reduced desire to eat, leading to weight loss
  • Multiple hospitalizations or ER visits
  • Recurring infections
  • Functional decline, including inability to speak or communicate clearly
  • Increased pain or difficulty breathing
  • Progression of disease including poor response to treatment
  • Decision to focus on quality of life instead of aggressive treatments

Arranging for Hospice Care

Generally speaking, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans’ Administration (VA) benefits or your insurance will cover the costs associated with hospice care. Hospice has been included as a Medicare benefit since 1983, and Tabitha Hospice services are covered 100% under the Medicare hospice benefits—this means there are no out-of-pocket costs for qualified individuals. In addition, Medicare hospice benefits cover the cost of associated medications, medical equipment and a variety of nursing and support services.

Thanks to generous donations, no one is turned away from Tabitha Hospice care—regardless of their ability to pay for services.
