A simple phone call starts the process. We accept referrals directly from hospice staff, doctors and hospitals. However, the final referral must come from the Hospice Agency to which you and your loved one are currently assigned. If you are not already affiliated with a hospice agency, we suggest that you check with your family physician in order to start the process. We can provide you with a list of agencies because each guest must be working with a Hospice Agency before being considered for admission to Hospice House of Williamsburg. The guest and their family will be contacted by our Clinical Director to gather any further information needed and to assure that we can meet the needs of you and your family before a decision is reached.
Below are the initial criteria to be considered for admission to the Hospice House of Williamsburg:
1. Must be signed on with a local hospice organization.
2. A DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) must be signed and on file.
Once mutually agreed that Hospice House of Williamsburg is the right choice for you, a private room will be offered as soon as available. Your hospice agency will arrange for your transportation to our home. Hospice House of Williamsburg is self-sustainable and has all equipment our guest may need. If we do not, your hospice provider will make sure it is at the house before the guest arrives.
