February 2 is Go Red For Women Day
February 2 is Go Red For Women Day, and Life Source Hospice encourages everyone to wear red to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and save lives.
Hospice care is appropriate for patients with end-stage cardiac conditions, including congestive heart failure (CHF), if the patient meets the admission criteria set forth by Medicare and Medicaid.
Life Source Hospice will provide medication and therapies for symptom management to help keep the patient comfortable. An individualized plan-of-care will be coordinated based on the patient’s specific needs, but many times this includes supplemental Oxygen (O2) which, unlike home health benefits, is provided with no out-of-pocket expense.
If you are interested in more information about Life Source Hospice and hospice care for cardiac patients, please call us at (225) 291-9421.
