Opting for hospice care is never an easy decision. For most people, it may seem like giving up on a family member’s health condition, but in reality, it provides for a smoother transition into their twilight years. Hospice care lets them live their final years in dignity and wellness instead of a constant panic of going to and from hospitals in hopes of treatment.
When do you know it’s time for hospice care? Here are some things you need to consider:
- Do they need pain and symptom management to live normally?
- Do they have more than one serious condition like diabetes and heart disease?
- Have they been diagnosed with a serious illness that could run its course in one year or less?
- Have they been admitted to the emergency room or hospital several times within the last six months?
- Do they have a hard time talking to their doctor and family about personal preferences as they consider end-of-life care choices?
