Hospice is a word that conjures up feelings and fears that we would rather not discuss. Part of the reason is that it is still so misunderstood and believed as “giving Up”, but it is really anything but that. Hospice is for everyone! Some of us will have the privilege of knowing and understanding we are in the last chapter of our lives and take charge. Dying is not a medical event: it’s a family, spiritual event. Hospice is the essence of living on your own terms. Hospice is about improving or maintaining the highest quality of life.

Decisions about end of life care are typically not thought about until the moment a crisis occurs. Some of our biggest life decisions are made when emotions are running high: Confusion and exhaustion are overwhelming and the ability to think clearly has faded. This may be the biggest medical decision you are faced with. We can help you be better prepared to make decisions by understanding what it is you are looking for. Know what to ask and what to look for when it comes to care for you or someone you love.
