Care for Patients
When it comes to decisions about end-of-life care we understand that it can be a difficult choice. Nobody wants to think about losing somebody they love. Hospice is here to provide care to patients and their families, while improving patient’s quality of life. There are often signs that indicate hospice might be necessary. The list below outlines possible signs to watch for when it comes to terminal illness and end of life transitions.
1. Chronic Pain that is Difficult to Manage- Hospice provides treatment to decrease pain and enhances the quality of life for patients. If traditional methods of care are not keeping your pain at a manageable level, then it may be time to consider hospice.
2. Multiple Trips to the Emergency Room- Nobody likes to spend their time in a hospital. If you are making frequent visits to the emergency room, then hospice may be able to provide care without the burden of going in and out of a hospital.
