If you or a loved one has a serious or terminal illness and you’ve opted not to seek additional treatment to cure the disease, it’s time to call hospice. Hospice is a special kind of care that provides patients with palliative care and comfort in their final days.
Hospice was originally designed as a way for people who were terminally ill to spend their last months or weeks in comfort and peace. Today, it’s available to anyone who needs it, regardless of their illness or prognosis.
Hospice is based on the belief that dying can be annul and peaceful process if the patient is given the chance to prepare for death and have closure on all the things they still haven’t accomplished in life. It also helps caregivers transition smoothly into retirement or another kind of retirement without feeling overwhelmed by caregiving responsibilities.
If you’re thinking about calling hospice for your loved one, there are a few things you need to know:
– You don’t have to be terminally ill to access hospice care.
– It’s not a cure, but it can help patients live longer and happier lives.
– It costs money, but it’s worth it because it gives patients peace of mind in their final days.
