Hospice Care Specialty Programs


While all Medicare-certified hospice agencies provide the same core services to patients, some companies like Amedisys also offer specialized programs or protocols to help patients with specific diagnoses or demographics.

From developing evidence-based programs for patients with end-stage heart failure and dementia to catering to the unique needs of veterans at the end of life, our caregivers are well positioned to provide high-quality, personalized care to your loved ones.
