Things to Consider

Making the decision to transition to hospice care for a loved one can be emotionally challenging. This guide offers essential questions and insights to help you determine when hospice may be the right choice. Our goal is to provide you with the information and support needed during this crucial decision-making process.

When is the right time for Hospice?

One of the challenges for family members and caregivers of loved ones who are near the end of life is knowing when it is time to consider hospice. We took the liberty of collating some questions to help you during this decision.

  • Has your loved one's condition and symptoms progressed to the point that they cannot be adequately controlled?
  • Has your loved one endured multiple hospitalizations, emergency department visits, or repeated use of other healthcare services?
  • Is your loved one experiencing pain, weakness, shortness of breath, or rapid weight loss?
  • Has the attending physician or specialist said there is nothing more that can be done to slow or cure the condition?
  • Has your loved one indicated that the side effects of aggressive medical treatments outweigh the benefits?
  • Is your loved one refusing to go to any more doctor appointments?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, hospice may be able to help you. Let us show you how we can help your loved one remain comfortable in their current living environment. Call us for a free evaluation of hospice eligibility. If they are hospice appropriate, we can have the conversation with their physician.
