Hospice Care in Hospitals and Nursing Homes


Accord Hospice is committed to working with your facility to ensure the best possible patient care.  As licensed Nursing Home Administrators, the Accord Hospice Administrators understand the complex relationship between the skilled nursing facility and hospice provider.  

Accord Hospice works hand-in-hand with your staff to ensure excellence in patient care, documentation and compliance.  Accord Hospice provides 24-hour admissions, delivery of DME, attendance at care plan meetings, 24-hour continuous care (as necessary), specialized dementia care, and direct Medicare billing.

Accord Hospice is available to guide your staff through in-services and other educational opportunities. 

Referring a Patient to Accord Hospice

The Right Time to Refer Your Resident
Ideally, the earlier an individual receives hospice care, the more opportunity there is to stabilize their medical condition and address other needs. Please consider referring your residents when they have a survival prognosis of six months or less, when they still having some quality of life without the possibility of a cure, when they have month-to-month health changes or when 10 percent weight loss is noted.
Receiving hospice care does not mean giving up hope or that death is imminent. Some patients actually improve and at times have been discharged from hospice care.

Always With Your Residents & Community In Mind
As a residential healthcare provider, your number one goal is caring for the overall well-being of your residents. When future medical intervention is no longer a realistic option, the next step could be recommending hospice care. Accord understands and respects that your referral is also a reflection on your community. Your residents have trusted you with their care, and Accord is committed to continuing that same quality of care.

Referral is Easy
A staff member from your facility may either call us directly; or provide our contact information to residents and their family. Please contact Accord at (847) 780-4594. Thank you for your trust in Accord Hospice and the superior care we will deliver.
