How do I Determine if my Loved one is a Candidate for Hospice Care?
If you are considering hospice care for your family member please look at the following list which highlights some of the most important considerations to be addressed. The list is by no means inclusive, and we ask you to keep in mind that patients and their families are usually able to better determine their own particular care needs.
- The physician has changed the focus of treatment from curative to palliative care, and this has been discussed with the patient and the family members.
- The patient and family now require more support and resources than can be rendered by a traditional home health program.
- The patient and or family members desire hospice or want to find out more about the hospice program.
- The physician or patient is interested in more information regarding pain management and symptom control and is interested in having hospice staff intervene for this purpose.
