Is hospice a place or an in-home service?
Hospice is not a place but instead a type of care for patients who have a life-limiting illness. Although there are facilities that only offer hospice services, the term hospice does not by definition mean that it is a facility. Hospice care can be administered wherever the patient is at the moment care is needed. Whether that be in their Montgomery County home, a hospital, or at an assisted living facility.
