Most people think that hospice is about dying. We are here to show you that hospice is about living.
The concepts surrounding hospice are often taboo and we avoid the conversation until we are forced to make end of life decisions. There are many misconceptions about what hospice is and when the best time is to start talking about hospice care. As a result, hospice seems intimidating and this causes underutilization of the many benefits hospice provides. Most patients and families who have received hospice care report they wish they would have known about these services and support earlier.
Join us for our July 14 discussion in which we will be debunking some common hospice myths and providing the real facts!
