Hospice is never
an easy decision to make.
If your loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, there may come a time when the efforts to slow the illness are not working and becomes more harmful than helpful. If that time comes, choosing hospice might be the best solution.
Deciding when is the right time is a personal choice. Patients tend to transition to hospice when they have decided to stop curative or aggressive treatments and focus on their quality of life.
