Hospice Care

Hospice is a program that provides care to terminally ill individuals with a focus on easing symptoms rather than treating disease. The emphasis of the program is to help individuals remain at home for as long as possible.

The NYS Hospice Profile provides information about hospices in New York State, including what counties each hospice is licensed to serve, what services they offer, the results of Department of Health inspections, and any enforcement actions taken to redress deficiencies. You are encouraged to use this information to begin conversations with your doctor and other health care professionals about your hospice care options, as well as with family members, friends, and associates who may have direct experience with a particular agency or program.
