Malinformation Deflation: Hospice Care
 

(Page 2 of 2)

 

Some truths about Hospice care:

Don’t feel too bad about not immediately understanding the value of hospice care since many professionals (including doctors) do not fully understand hospice either. The first thing to realize is that hospice is not a place, but a concept. Hospice care can take place in a stand-alone facility, in a nursing home, in a hospital or even at home. And contrary to any misinformation that is out there, investigating hospice care does not in any way mean that you or your medical team has “given up.” Some of the best and most supportive care I have witnessed for ill friends and family members, as well as their loved ones, has been with hospice care.
