Where does the hospice journey begin?
- Your physician or someone in the healthcare system may have mentioned hospice to you.
- Your doctor may have said that there is nothing more they can offer to treat your condition.
- You may have decided that you or your loved one no longer desire hospitalizations or aggressive treatments for your condition.
The hospice journey begins by you or your physician reaching out to Trail Winds Hospice, so that we can schedule to come and meet with you. If there is no question that you desire hospice care and you meet the criteria for eligibility, this would be an admission visit. If you and your family still have questions about the hospice benefit, this would be an informational visit.
Your hospice journey should begin with you and your loved ones feeling informed, supported, and clear on the hospice benefit.
At Trail Winds Hospice, we most often hear patients and families say that they wish they had chosen hospice sooner. This is often because we are experts in managing symptoms, and quality-of-life focused care.
