When to think about hospice

Postby Robin » Sat Aug 29, 2015 4:02 pm

I ran across this very helpful Washington Post article today from January 2015. It addresses:

* what is hospice care?
* how much care does hospice provide?
* who pays for hospice care?
* if hospice is not a place, where do I get its care?
* why would I want hospice care? Can't my doctors and local hospital adequately meet my needs?
* when should I start to think about hospice?
* are all hospices the same?
* how do I find a good hospice? One answer - ask at a support group meeting!
* are there any other criteria to judge the quality of a hospice?
* where can I go (online) for additional help?

Below, I've copied the link to the Washington Post website.
