WHEN IS IT TIME FOR HOSPICE CARE?

Does your loved one…

  • Have difficulty chewing or swallowing?
  • Fall frequently?
  • Have a weight loss of more than 10% over a period of 4-6 months?
  • Have a diagnosis of a life-threatening illness with a prognosis of less than 6 months?
  • Experience pain, shortness of breath, nausea, or discomfort that is affecting their quality of life?
  • Depend on caregivers to handle basic hygiene needs: toileting, bathing, dressing, feeding?
  • Prefer to concentrate on quality of life rather than pursuing aggressive treatments?
