Hospice is a Medicare benefit and is covered by most insurance for individuals with a terminal diagnosis of six months or less to live. No referral is needed to consult with one of our professionals to determine whether a patient fits the hospice criteria. However, a physician referral is required to begin hospice services.

We use a team approach to address the medical, social, spiritual, psychological and emotional needs of patients, caregivers and families. Our hospice nurses, therapists and dedicated volunteers are specially trained in the various aspects of end-of-life care. Hospice services are offered through:

Home Based Hospice

Hospice staff visits the patient wherever he or she may be, whether at home, in the hospital or in a nursing home. Our home-based hospice care serves Ames and a 50-mile radius around it.

Israel Family Hospice House
