The focus is on improving the quality of life for people by clarifying goals of care.
While hospice care provides comfort and resources, many patients and families are just not ready for hospice.
They may view the move to hospice care as a loss of hope and an act of giving up. The patient may still wish to pursue rehab or curative treatments.
Or, there may be conflict in the family as to what the best course of action is. In sum, the patient may be medically qualified for hospice, but not ready to take that particular step. The Hospice Team will offer its expertise, helping the individual in making his/her wishes known to their physician who can monitor them for hospice eligibility.
The Hospice team can be of great assistance in working with participants on advance care planning and preparation.
