When to Start Hospice Care

When a loved one is suffering from a terminal illness it is tough. How do you decide when to start hospice care? The time to start hospice care is when treatment is no longer working and the main focus shifts to providing comfort for the patient. This is usually when the doctor announces the patient has less than six months. Hospice & Palliative Care Federation of Massachusetts suggests ” By contacting hospice early in the diagnosis  the patient and family reserve time to understand their options and choose the path that will have the most positive impact on quality of life.”Before making the decision to switch to hospice care, discuss this with families and doctors. 

A-1 Home Care in Altadena offers hospice care along with general in home senior and elderly care services. Hospice care is also available in Pasadena, Alhambra, Arcadia, La Crescenta, Sierra Madre, Rosemead, San Marino, or other cities in Los Angeles County or San Gabriel Valley.
