Everyone has a right to choose their healthcare options. If a patient wants to stop the hospice benefit for any reason, they can.

Elara Caring is a Medicare-certified hospice provider and is fully staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year—including weekends and holidays. Patients and caregivers are encouraged to call any time and will be connected with the appropriate staff person based on the need. A nurse will visit to address a patient’s changing needs even if the visit is outside of the scheduled care plan.
