Referrals

Many people wish to die at home. Unfortunately, many families simply do not have the resources to care for a loved one until the end of life. When individuals can no longer be cared for at home but do not need hospital services or do not wish to die there, our residential hospice provides an option for care in a home-like environment.

First step to receiving ARCH care: Referral

 

ARCH has a comprehensive referral program. Our Intake Coordinator will meet with the individual and family at the individual's home or at the hospital. The process will involve talking to the individual about their current health care condition, their support and any symptoms they are experiencing. Admissions are made based on priority, not on referral time.
