This is the cornerstone of our organization’s Open Access philosophy, which ensures that HOPE will accept any person eligible for Hospice Care regardless of the complexity of their medical needs. Anyone may request an information visit or make a referral to HOPE 24 hours a day - 7 days a week – 365 days a year. To request more information or make a referral you may contact us online @ or call HOPE @ 847-803-0400 24 hours a day. Is Hospice Care appropriate at this time?
Have you or your loved one…..
been hospitalized or gone to the emergency room several times in the past year?
needed more frequent contact with your personal physician over the past year?
started taking medication to lessen physical pain?
been less active – spending more time in a chair or bed due to fatigue?
fallen several times over the past year?
began to require help from others with personal care such as bathing, dressing, walking, eating and cooking, or getting out of bed?
started to feel weaker or more tired lately?
experienced unintentional weight loss?
been short of breath even while resting?
been told by your doctor that your life expectancy is limited?
If you or your loved one answered yes to any of these questions you may be eligible for Hospice Care.
Your hospice nurses are VERY special people and went way beyond their "job" and I will never forget them.
I wanted to say thank you for being so nice and caring to my mom, I know that she was very fond of you.
