Hope Hospice in St. Louis Creates Awareness on Hospice Care

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Month falls in November. In metro St. Louis, Hope Hospice is working to create awareness on hospice care and spread the word about the ways hospice groups serve patients and families.

Laura Bilbrey, vice-president and co-founder of Hope Hospice, says, "We want people to know that hospice is not just for the last few days of a person's life. Hospice is set up to provide care for up to six months or even longer."


"Hospice care is a team effort," she continues, "combining medical care with emotional and spiritual support for persons with a terminal diagnosis. Our team includes a massage therapist and a music therapist. We offer guidance and assistance to those who are serving as caregivers for patients at the end of life."

Mentioning the costs of hospice care, Bilbrey says, medicare and most private insurers cover hospice completely. So, concerns about expense should never stop people from contacting hospice care.

Hospice offers patients care in their homes, as well as in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Hope Hospice is an independent, locally owned agency which serves patients and families in St. Louis city, St. Louis County, Jefferson County, St. Charles County and Franklin County. Offices are located near Page and Lindbergh in Overland.
