We are Medicare/Medicaid certified, and licensed by the state of North Carolina to deliver hospice services. Additionally, we choose to be accredited by ACHC (Accreditation Commission for Health Care). Hospice supports life and exists to help those with life-limiting illnesses live as comfortably and fully as possible. Services may be delivered in patients’ homes, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, and in our 8-bed.
Who is eligible for Hospice services? Hospice of Rockingham County (HRC) offers its services regardless of a person’s age, race, creed, religious preferences, or ability to pay. The basic criteria for admission into our Hospice program are:
