The Truth About Hospice: Introduction

Let’s face it. Death is a difficult topic. No one wants to think about it. Few are willing to talk about it. But we’ll all deal with it, eventually. Many will go through the final days with an elderly parent, family member or friend. Some will need to manage the details from afar.

But end of life doesn’t need to be so daunting or depressing or dreaded. It can be full of life-affirming moments of compassionate care. Advance planning is key to making sure a loved one’s final days are as comfortable and organized as possible. However, even if you’ve already started down that road with a family member or friend, and don’t know where you’re headed, it’s not too late to get the information you need to help make smart decisions.

Among the most difficult aspects of hospice care are the pre-conceived ideas about end of life. There are many myths surrounding hospice. There’s also fear. Facing the truth on and taking action could be the best course for you and your family.

In this guide, we’ll address several of the myths about hospice, and hopefully give you or someone you’re caring for a clearer view of the road ahead.
