Is it time for hospice?

Is it time for hospice?

 Because hospice is a specialized service and benefit, specific criteria have been established to identify a person that qualifies for hospice services.  A person should meet these guidelines per Medicare requirements.

 Have you or a loved one:

  • Experienced repeated visits to the hospital with no long term results?
  • Visited multiple doctors frequently with little to no results?
  • Routinely taking medication for pain?
  • Started spending most of the day in a chair or bed?
  • Had several falls in the last several months?
  • Decided that treatment is becoming more of a burden than a benefit?
  • Had significant, unexplained weight loss over the last year?
  • Had significant changes in eating or not eating at all?
  • Noticed shortness of breath, even when resting?
  • Been told by a doctor that life expectancy is limited?
  • Noticed that you need help with:
    • Bathing
    • Dressing
    • Eating
    • Walking
    • Getting out of bed

If so, it may be time to consider hospice care.  Call Peterson Hospice for a complimentary consultation.  We are here to assist you and your family, answering questions and honoring your wishes.
