When should I contact Community Hospice?

When the goal of treatment begins to shift from curing the illness to providing comfort, it is time to consider Hospice care. This may come well before a physician indicates that the patient's life expectancy is limited. Unfortunately, many people wait until their final days to involve Hospice care. By contacting Hospice early, the patient and family are informed of their options and may choose the path that will have the most positive impact on their life. The best time to learn about hospice is before you need it. We are available to meet with you and your family to help determine the right time for services to begin.
