National Hospice And Palliative Care Month: When Is It Time To Consider Hospice Care?

National Hospice and Palliative Care Month: When Is It Time to Consider Hospice Care?

Our patients and families often tell us they wish they had known about and chosen hospice services sooner. Patients and families benefit most when they have hospice for the final months of life rather than the last few days or hours. 

Hospice care can help assure a better quality of life by providing personalized care from an interdisciplinary team, keeping patients comfortable, supporting family caregivers and delivering all these services directly to your home. 

How do you decide when it’s time to call hospice? Consider the following questions: 

    • Are you visiting the doctor more often? 
    • Have your visits to the hospital or emergency room been more frequent? 
    • Are you using more pain medication? 
    • Have you had more frequent falls? 
    • Do you feel more tired and weak? 
    • Do you have shortness of breath, even when resting? 
    • Do you need more help with dressing, bathing, walking or toileting? 
    • Do you spend most of your time in your bed or a chair? 
    • Has your doctor told you that you have a limited life expectancy? 
    • Have you been losing weight without trying? 

    The more “yes” responses you have, the more likely it is that you could benefit from hospice services. You don’t need a physician referral to call us for information. We will be happy to meet with you and answer your questions. If a discussion with your doctor is appropriate, we will be happy to contact your doctor to start the conversation. 

    What are the Benefits of Hospice Care? 

    • Provides care for you in your own familiar environment. 
    • Supports you with a team of professionals and volunteers dedicated to helping the patient and family. 
    • Delivers care 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays. 
    • Eliminates the cost of out-of-pocket expenses for medications, durable medical equipment and medical supplies. Medicare, Medicaid and private insurances cover the cost of these necessary items for hospice patients. 
    • Helps patients avoid unwanted hospitalizations and medical treatments and procedures. 

    What types of diseases are helped the most by hospice care? 

    Ohio’s Hospice can help anyone living with a life-limiting disease. Though many hospice patients have cancer, we also have great expertise in providing comfort and symptom control for patients in the final stages of lung, heart and kidney disease, Alzheimer’s and other types of dementias, stroke, neuromuscular diseases, AIDS and many other illnesses. Hospice care can also be beneficial for those in a severe state of decline due to frailty or other disorders associated with aging.
