Frequently asked questions about HopeHealth

Q: Why have we added new services beyond hospice? What do we mean by unmet community needs?
A: People are living longer. Often, they are living for many years with multiple chronic conditions. In order for them to maintain their optimal health and independence, they need sophisticated, coordinated care available where they live. This is particularly true on Cape Cod and the surrounding communities we serve. Cape Cod has one of the oldest populations in the country with more than 10,000 people suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and over 5,000 homebound residents. In Bristol and Plymouth counties an additional 10,000 are estimated to be home-bound.

We remain committed to serving everyone who is eligible for hospice services and we have extended this commitment to serving those in need of other specialized care.
