What are some signs that it might be time to explore hospice care?

These may be some signs that it may be time to consider hospice or palliative care:

  • You've made multiple trips to the emergency room, your condition has been stabilized, but your illness continues to progress significantly, affecting your quality of life.
  • You've been admitted to the hospital several times within the last year with the same or worsening symptoms.
  • You wish to remain at home, rather than spend time in the hospital. You have decided to stop receiving treatments.
  • Your physician has told you there are no more treatment options.
