The patients and families we serve must reside in our
service area, which includes all of Scotland County and
areas of Robeson, Richmond, Hoke, Marlboro, Dillon and Chesterfield Counties.
Hospice patients are cared for in the familiar surroundings of their own homes, or home-like
settings such as rest homes and nursing homes.
The Hospice team develops an individualized plan of care based on the needs of each of our patients and his or her family members.
Those eligible for hospice care include persons of any age with a life threatening illness and limited life expectancy.
The patient’s physician must certify that the individual is appropriate for hospice care.
The patient must understand the hospice philosophy and agree to admission.
Referrals may be made by the physician, patient, family, friend, minister or other community agencies.
Once the physician approves the referral, a Scotland Regional Hospice staff member will schedule a meeting with the patient and family or caregiver to explain the program and answer any questions.
