Is Hospice Right for You?

  • "Our family would like to thank everyone involved in my husband's care. You helped us to fulfill his final wish and make his final journey from home. You are all amazing and special; you took great care of him as well as his family."

  • "Your caring staff is so valuable to families during critical times. Your support is very comforting and appreciated. We are truly grateful."

  • "We were blessed with the loving care you gave our Dad. The nurse was great and treated him like he was part of her family. We are forever grateful for all of you. Thank you."

  • "To the Hospice folks, words cannot express our thanks and appreciation for your tender touch and loving professionalism during our Dad's illness. We will always remember our nurse's expert skills and abilities as well as her personal touch. "

  • "We want to thank everyone who cared for our Mother. Everyone was so nice and caring and went over and beyond what we could have hoped for. Thank you all."

CareFirst provides care to Chemung, Steuben and Schuyler county residents whose prognosis is approximately six months or less, if the disease runs its normal course, regardless of the diagnosis. If curative treatment is no longer effective or you desire palliative comfort measures, hospice and palliative care may be appropriate for you.

If you have been diagnosed with a serious illness, it’s time to find out about CareFirst services so that you can have all the information you need to make informed decisions about your care. It is never too early to get this information, and receiving this information does not make you obligated in any way to elect our services. You can ask your physician about hospice care or call us directly at 607.962.3100 or 1.800.734.1570.

Using hospice services is not a one-way street. If further treatments become available after you are receiving our services, you may cancel your hospice benefit and continue with your treatment as you and your physician see appropriate.
