How to Refer a Patient to Alacare Home Health & Hospice

We are respectful of your time and try to make the process simple, offering several different ways for referring sources to begin the admission process for home health or hospice care.

Who Can Make a Referral?

The patient has the ultimate choice in choosing a home health provider. However, if a physician determines home care is necessary for the patient, any staff nurse in the institutional setting may forward relative patient information to Alacare to begin the patient’s home care admission process.

When making a referral, please provide the following information:

  • Patient’s full name

  • Patient’s street address

  • Patient’s phone number

  • Date of birth

  • Medicare number

  • Diagnosis

  • Primary physician’s name

  • Office phone number

  • Care orders, including medications

  • Referral source
