Hospice of North Central Ohio’s team of caregivers provides care in the home, nursing home, or assisted living facility. The frequency of visits varies depending on patient needs. At times, hospice patients may benefit from a stay at Hospice House, our 12-bed inpatient unit, before returning home. If the caregiver needs a break, Hospice House can be used for short-term respite care.
Hospice of North Central Ohio services are covered by Medicare Part A, Medicaid and most medical insurances; however, no one is turned away due to inability to pay. Grief services are offered at no cost thanks to generous contributions from individuals and social agencies.
