“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”George Bernard Shaw
End of life and hospice care are some of the most difficult but rewarding conversations that you can have with a loved one.
Your physician is best able to to discuss with you when to make the transition from trying to cure an illness to providing comfort care by managing pain and symptoms. We know it can be difficult to talk with your loved one or other family members about end-of-life care, but choosing hospice does not mean you are abandoning your loved one. This transition to hospice care can allow your family to more compassionately enjoy important time together.
