Hospice is a benefit for those faced with a life-limiting illness that is covered by Medicare and many insurance companies.   Knowing about hospice and the levels of care that precede it can make the difference in living out your life on your own terms.

On this program, Janet Bollig, Ridley Usherwood and Rachel Schneider describe the the stages of care, the difference between palliative and hospice care, the importance of advanced planning and, in the end, how hospice care can add quality and dignity to the remaining time you have.
