The Right Timing

The time to consider hospice is a personal decision but often begins when your loved one and their physician decide that efforts to cure the disease are no longer feasible or desirable. When the focus becomes about comfort and quality of life, it could be the right time to consider hospice.

Encourage your loved one to share their feelings with you about their wishes and hopes. If you think hospice might be the answer to fulfilling their wishes, then it’s probably time to speak to their physician about hospice care.
