End of Life Option Act

The Elizabeth Hospice educates patients and families in legal end-of-life options available. Our primary responsibility is to provide quality hospice care and support to our patients and their family members and caregivers.

Under the provisions of the End of Life Option Act, patients who are interested in participating in this law should contact their primary care physician (personal doctor) to let them know that they are interested in participating in this law.

The Elizabeth Hospice respects a patient’s right to choose and participate in its hospice care plan, and to exercise their right under the End of Life Option Act. We reaffirm our philosophy in supporting the patient and family through their care journey, neither prolonging life nor hastening death, and honoring self-determined life closure decisions.

The Elizabeth Hospice is committed to continuing to provide compassionate and quality care, education, and support to patients and their families, regardless of a patient’s choice to exercise their rights under the End of Life Option Act.
