Getting Started

While a physician's order is required to admit a patient to hospice or palliative care, anyone can make a referral, including friends or family. If someone you know is living with a life-limiting illness and might benefit from our services, we welcome your call.

To begin the referral process, whether the patient needs in-home care, care in an assisted living or nursing home facility or inpatient care at the Gordon Hospice House, simply contact the HPCIC office nearest you and ask to speak with our intake specialist, or use our online inquiry form.

The intake specialist can provide more information about hospice and palliative care and can help you determine whether these options might be the right choice. Hospice & Palliative Care of Iredell County will then work with the patient's doctor for certification into our program.

At HPCIC, we are committed to quality end-of-life care, and we appreciate your assistance in helping us reach all of our neighbors in their time of need.
