Guests: Carol Prothero, Regional Manager of Business Development; Ryan Klaustermeier, RN, Administrator – Heartland Hospice

Hospice is a special way of caring for people with terminal illnesses.  But when should a hospice evaluation be scheduled?  Knowing when is a difficult decision, and many patients and their loved ones who care for them say they wish hospice care had started sooner.

Do you have questions about hospice?  What are the signs that may indicate eligibility?  What is the hospice coverage provided by Medicare and private insurance companies?  Does hospice care mean you have to give up hope?

These questions and more are addressed on this program when Carol Prothero and Ryan Klaustermeier describe how customized hospice care can be and the range of services offered.
