November Is Hospice, Palliative Care Month

“It’s about how you live” is the theme for this year’s National Hospice & Palliative Care Month.

Hospice and palliative care organizations are the advocates and educators on advanced healthcare planning. We help individuals make decisions about the healthcare they would want to receive should they be faced with a serious or life-limiting illness, or if they were unable to speak for themselves. Learning about your options before being faced with a crisis and understanding what’s available to you and your family allows you to live each day to the fullest. Sharing your wishes with your family, loved ones, and physician leaves no question about how you want to be treated at the end-of-life.

Being diagnosed with a serious illness can be a hard pill to swallow, but how you choose to live is completely up to you. Hospice can help. Even when a cure is no longer available-comfort, compassion, and support is what hospice is all about. If you or someone you know is faced with a life-limiting illness, ask your doctor about hospice & palliative care. We can help you understand the nature of your illness, the likely outcome of your current course of treatment, what will happen next, and how you can have the best quality of life possible.
