A Legacy of ServiceWhether their story is one of facing life-limiting illness or coping with the loss of a loved one, each is unique.

3 Easy Ways to Refer: Phone, Fax or On-lineWhile a physician’s order is required to admit a patient to hospice or palliative care, anyone can make a referral, including friends or family. If someone you know is living with a life-limiting illness and might benefit from our services, we welcome your call, your fax or online inquiry.
To begin the referral process, whether the patient needs in-home care, care in an assisted living or nursing home facility, simply contact the ExpectCare Hospice office and our staff will provide you with the assistance you require.
Our staff can provide information about hospice care and can help you determine whether these options might be the right choice. ExpectCare Hospice will then work with the patient’s doctor for certification into our program.
At ExpectCare Hospice, we are committed to quality end-of-life care. You expect care, and we will provide you and your family quality end-of-life care and support.
