When Is It Time?

It is never too early to ask about hospice services to see if the care is right for you.

It is time to consider hospice when patients have a life-limiting illness as confirmed by their physician and choosing comfort care. Other signs for considering hospice include the presence of multiple diseases, frequent hospitalizations or trips to the emergency room, physical decline, loss of function, weight loss, and dependence on activities of daily living.
