Why Hospice Care?

Patients who are diagnosed with a terminal condition or illness and are considering hospice care have often been referred by a family physician or hospital doctor after it has been determined that further curative treatment will not be beneficial to the patient.

We can imagine the difficulty of being told by a medical professional that “nothing more can be done for you.” This is a scary and often shocking realization to patients and families. They may ask themselves “so what do we do now?” This a question that we can help to answer through Hospice Care Education.
