Understanding the four levels of hospice care is crucial at Sahara Hospice Care, where we provide comfort and quality to patients with life-limiting conditions, tailored to their preferred setting.
When a physician determines a life expectancy of six months or less, the patient becomes eligible for hospice care. Our skilled team, adhering to this essential criterion, can then manage the medical care in line with the patients’ and their families’ wishes.
