Referral Choosing Hospice Care

It’s a common misconception that hospice care is only for the last days of life. In reality, people and their family members can benefit best from hospice care when it is provided for a longer span of time.

Too often patients are referred in the last weeks or even days of their lives. Seeking hospice care sooner can enhance quality of life providing a greater benefit to an individual and their family.

Is hospice care right for you?

Have you or your loved one experienced any of the following?

  • Frequent falls
  • Recurrent infections
  • Weight loss and decreased appetite
  • Feeling more tired or confused
  • Several hospitalizations
  • Difficulty bouncing back from a medical setback
  • Increased shortness of breath or pain
  • Trouble with daily activities like dressing, bathing or walking
  • Advanced chronic illness
