We will BEE there because we CARE!
to Our Site
Honeybee Hospice will be providing hospice care to the communities of Butte and Dillon and surrounding areas where able.
Our mission is to provide the best quality of care possible for individuals and families during a potentially difficult time through our genuine and compassionate services, trustworthy caregivers, and respect for the dignity and desires of those individuals and families we serve.
There is a common misconception that hospice care is giving up. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hospice provides high quality medical care that maximizes quality of life and makes the wishes of the patient our priority.
Premier Hospice Services
Honeybee Hospice is dedicated to providing the best hospice cares possible. Those services include: a licensed medical director, emergency nursing services available and on-call 24/7, visits by both nurses and aides on a routine basis, social workers, chaplains, and other contracted services as appropriate.
Medicare's hospice benefit should cover any prescription drugs you need for pain and symptom management related to your terminal condition. You pay a $5 copayment for outpatient pain and symptom management drugs. Medications not related to the hospice diagnosis are not covered by hospice.
Durable Medical Equipment
When you officially begin receiving hospice care at home, the hospice nurse will assess your need for hospice equipment and supplies. The nurse will also arrange for delivery of these items to your home. All hospice medical equipment will be delivered and set up by our highly-trained durable medical equipment vendor.
