Presence Life Connections

Personalized care and support.

Making the decision to choose hospice is not easy. Hospice can offer the support and encouragement that patients and families need to shift their focus from curative to comfort. Our goal is to treat each patient with compassion, and support them emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically.

Every patient and every family is different. We get that.

That is why we work with the patient and their loved ones to determine the right plan of care while providing dignity, care, comfort and support to patients and families alike. We care for patients wherever they are, in their own home, in a nursing home or in a hospital.  If symptoms need to monitored more closely, patient and families have 24/7 access to our Ark inpatient unit, located at Presence Resurrection Medical Center.

What services are provided?

Care and services are provided based on assessed needs and patient and family choices. Presence Hospice team members will visit on a pre-arranged schedule in addition to visits requested by the patient or family as circumstances change.

Services offered through Rainbow Hospice and Palliative Care include:

  • Pain and symptom management, including medications for comfort
  • Personal care for hygiene and comfort
  • Medical equipment and supplies as needed
  • Assistance with planning and accessing community resources as well as bereavement groups and services
  • Counseling by a chaplain and other professionals
  • Therapies to improve quality of life

Who pays for hospice?

Hospice care and services are covered by Medicare and Medicaid, and includes medications, equipment and supplies that are ordered as comfort measures. Most private insurance plans and managed care organizations also cover the costs.
