When to Talk About Hospice

Discussing Hospice Care

At Cedar Valley Hospice, we understand that talking about hospice can be a difficult and emotional conversation to start. The simplest answer is that hospice care should be looked at as an option when a loved one has been given a life expectancy of six months or less. Hospice care can also be discussed for an expected future need as well.

Starting the hospice care conversation can be difficult. Explaining to others that hospice care is a means of gaining control of the rest of their life and that it benefits everyone involved can help them see the value of hospice care.

If you’re having trouble starting a conversation about hospice care with a loved one, Cedar Valley Hospice can help. Contact Cedar Valley Hospice  today for help with discussing hospice care.
