When to Talk About Hospice Care?
When you or your loved one has been diagnosed with a serious life-limiting illness, it is frightening and uncomfortable. It is important to express your desires and goals regarding your end of life care. It is never too early to have a conversation about all of your treatment options so that you may get the most out of life and live as fully and comfortably as possible. When the disease is unresponsive to curative treatment and care is directed towards comfort rather than cure, it may be the right time for hospice.
