End of Life Care and Planning

Your loved one may be a candidate for hospice services, and you and the whole family could benefit from those holistic and supportive approaches. You should review with your family his/her end of life wishes and discuss what you do and don’t want at this point (and what your loved one would want/not want).

These are tough decisions—do you treat every infection or pneumonia? Do you keep your loved one on every medication? Hospice can help you think through next steps.
