  • Hospice of Montezuma:
    • Hospice services are available to persons who can no longer benefit from curative treatment, or choose to end curative treatment.  The typical hospice patient has a life expectancy of six months or less.  Most receive care at home, but we do provide care in assisted living facilities, nursing homes and hospitals.  Services are provided by a team of trained professionals – physicians, nurses, counselors, therapists, social workers, aides and volunteers – who provide care and support services not only to the patient, but to the patient’s family and loved ones.
