November is National Hospice Month

November 1, 2016

A common misconception of hospice care is people on hospice are lying in a bed, waiting to die. Even 40 years after the hospice movement began in the United States, many still equate hospice with “giving up.” Hospice care serves as a valid health care option for end-of-life. By learning more about the true benefits of hospice, families can ensure they make the best decisions for themselves and their loved ones—before a health care emergency.

Recently one of our patients shared, “I still have a lot of living to do. My terminal diagnosis won’t stop me from enjoying the life I have left.” Imagine if more people has his incredible mindset.

November is National Hospice Month—a time to learn about hospice care, and celebrate this end-of-life care option.

When patients are admitted into hospice care at an appropriate time, their quality of life can actually improve. Hospice is team-oriented, specialized care for people facing life-limiting illnesses. It includes expert medical care, pain management, spiritual and emotional support for patients and their families. More simply, hospice care supports living one’s life to the fullest and with dignity, regardless of how much time remains. Choosing hospice can give patients the care they need, while also providing them with moments of joy, peace and comfort.

We continuously hear from our patients and their loved ones, “I had no idea hospice did so much … I wish we would have known about hospice sooner … We couldn’t do this without hospice.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the benefits of hospice care, please contact us. Don’t wait until you’re faced with a medical crisis.

A terminal diagnosis can still include a lot of living. Call (479) 872-3377 to learn more.
