If it has been recommended that you or a loved one enter hospice care, it's the job of the medical team to provide you with hospice options in your area. Even if the hospital or facility has its own hospice services, you can always choose an outside provider.
Oftentimes, entering hospice is a choice that the patient makes on their own or with the help of loved ones and doctors. So, now, you may be left wondering, “Why would someone choose to enter hospice care?”
At Faith Hospice, we always strive to ensure that those in our community are as well-prepared as possible during these difficult times. In this blog, we’ll discuss some signs and symptoms that could signify that your loved one is ready to start receiving hospice care.
Whether you have recently been given the news that a loved one should seek hospice care or they have already begun the process, you might be asking yourself, “What now?” By becoming more informed of what lies ahead, you can be better prepared to support your loved one through their end-of-life journey.
The work we do training and educating our staff, community, and other providers positively affects the field at large, but the most profound impact is happening each day in the lives of those we serve.
