What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Indigent Care program

The indigent care program of Hospice of Acadiana, Inc. is a hospice and palliative care program providing the same services to patients and their families, regardless of their ability to pay for those services.

****The cost for providing hospice and palliative care services is totally dependent on the length of life of each patient, the disease process and the severity of the disease. Hospice care covers the medication and durable medical equipment for the patient relating to the terminal diagnosis.***

Population(s) Served

No One Dies Alone is a new program of Hospice of Acadiana, Inc. aimed at providing volunteers to have round the clock vigils for patients who may die alone with no family or friends present. The goal of the program is to make sure patients do not die alone in pain or fear. Currently the program is taking place in Lafayette. As soon as support is garnered for other communities, we will expand the program. 

 

***Currently there is no budget for the program. The costs are part of the volunteer program itself.

Population(s) Served
