When a loved one enters the advanced stages of an illness, hospice can help them enjoy a more peaceful, happy life. Hospice care focuses on providing comfort and improved quality of life, as opposed to treatment and rehabilitation. You likely spent a lot of time making the decision to enter a loved one onto hospice care, but once the decision is made, you need to choose the right hospice.
Residents of Michigan can come to First State Hospice. Our experienced team of nurses and caregivers treat every resident with dignity and sympathy, and we’ll ensure that your loved ones can enjoy their final months.
Typically, before a patient can enter hospice care, a documented prognosis by a certified physician that shows a life-limiting prognosis is required, and the patient needs to voluntarily elect to enter a hospice and receive palliative care. When this is done, we will work with the patient at their home or facility, and with their family, to create a comfortable living environment.
If you’re unsure as to whether or not hospice care is necessary for your ailing loved one, talk with them and their doctor. The decision is never easy, but it is important, and open communication is key. Don’t let your loved ones suffer — choose First State Hospice Care.
