First steps in Hospice and Palliative Care

Referrals and requests for hospice and palliative care come from a variety of sources, including prospective patients, families, friends, healthcare professionals or spiritual counselors. It is an easy three-step process to learn if Compassus is right for you.


Step One

Visit our Locations page to find the program nearest you.

Call the location phone number 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We’ll help you learn more about the process or schedule a no-obligation consultation.


Step Two

Our admissions coordinator will promptly contact all responsible parties to coordinate family consultations and/or patient assessments.


Step Three

Our admission team consults, evaluates and initiates care, if appropriate. We bring hospice care to where the patient calls home, whether a private home, nursing home or long-term care community.


Contact us 24-hours a day, 7-days a week for more information or to schedule a consultation.
