When is it Time for Hospice?
Every person is different, but these signs often indicate that it’s time for hospice care:
- Frequent hospital visits or trips to the ER
- Weakness, frailty, or extreme fatigue
- Lack of appetite and weight loss
- Loss of pleasure or interest in activities
Your doctor may suggest hospice if he thinks that you probably have six months or less to live. However, anyone can make a referral for hospice care. Even if you aren’t sure if you’re ready for hospice care, we may be able to connect you to other helpful programs.
