When is the right time to navigate toward the hospice route?
In some of our previous discussions we have mentioned that many who have received hospice services have wished they would have enrolled sooner, and that hospice is not a service reserved for just those in their final days or weeks of life. For this upcoming presentation, we will discuss when the right time is for hospice, hospice eligibility, review the process of how someone can learn more about hospice services, and how to determine if you, a loved one, or client may be eligible for this incredible benefit. Join us for our August 11th discussion in which we will be diving into the different eligibility guidelines for hospice.
Date: August 11, 2021
Time: 3:00 PM
