How Niagara County residents benefit when they call Niagara Hospice:

1. We care for patients, families and caregivers in Niagara County faced with any type of illness prognosis of 6 months; or up to 12 months for strictly Medicaid recipients.

2. Our goal is to admit patients earlier in the illness process to provide care, comfort and quality of life. We want to maximize the time left for the whole family.

3. Our services are provided in patients’ and caregivers’ homes, our partner facilities and contracted facilities in Niagara County.

4. Anyone, including a family member, relative, friend, health care provider or patients themselves, can refer a patient for an evaluation of eligibility. 

5. Once someone calls with a referral, we will respond that date with an evaluation for eligibility. Even if a patient is not eligible, we can refer to other community resources and will continue to follow up with the family.
