Back in the early 1980’s, only about 25,000 people were part of hospice care. However, it jumped up to nearly 1.5 million a few years ago, and the number is growing. Part of the what attract hospice care to patients is the comfort in their own home. Often an open discussion about hospice care works best for patients’ family as it is more a relief than a burden to carry around. Discussing plans for hospice care means the family is being open about things, and does not mean giving up support. The doctor might not want to bring up the option of hospice care in front of the everyone, so it is usually the patients who has to ask about it. So if you or your loved ones are suffering from a terminal illness, maybe hospice care is an option you might consider.
