The Steps Towards Planning for Hospice Care

(805) 200-4102

Taking the first steps towards your end-of-life journey can be extremely overwhelming and scary at times. Emotions can be extremely heightened. However, one of the best things for a family or patient dealing with declining health is to create an end-of-life plan for hospice care. 

Better yet, make sure that you make these plans early. Research has often shown that people often live 26 days longer when they have access to excellent hospice care. They also tend to have a higher quality of life. 

Learn more about the steps towards planning for hospice care below.

Find the Right Doctor

Having the right doctor on your team can make a massive difference when it comes to the advice and care you receive at this crucial time. These physicians specialize in the health of older people who understand the importance of beginning hospice care as early as possible in order to make the journey more comfortable and fulfilling. 

Often, general practitioners will believe that they are letting down their patients when they get to the hospice care stage. This is because they have been trained to cure patients. Remember, hospice is about the care, not the cure.

Make an Informational Appointment

Knowing where to begin can sometimes be the hardest part of making home hospice care plans. However, it is always best to have the answers to your questions. An information in-person appointment can help you understand what is going to happen within the next few months.

Most hospice companies have staff who will be more than happy to answer your questions. They will walk you through exactly what you can expect. They may even provide you with additional resources. 

This is done to ensure that the process is as easy as possible.

At La Bella Vita Hospice Inc, we can help you with common questions and anything to make end-of-life care easier for you and your loved ones. We don’t want you venturing into the unknown alone which is why we make a conscious effort to do the best we can to make your experience easier than ever before.
