Considering the Hospice Option

Is Hospice for You?

Although hospice is available and may be an option for you, whether you decide to take advantage of it is entirely a personal choice. And while many people would prefer to die in the comfort of their own homes, it is still the norm for terminally ill people to die in a hospital, receiving treatment that is either ineffective or unwanted. Also, in a hospital setting, your loved ones may be limited in their access to see you and may miss sharing those last moments with you.
 
Hospice care can be a wonderful option for many people. If you decide that this is right for you, the hospice team will help design a care plan that meets your needs and helps you live your remaining days in comfort and surrounded by as much support and love as possible.
