Family Discussion Guide
Discussing about end-of-life care is always difficult. We easily get emotional and may not tackle the important points that need to be decided on.
So here is a guide that may be useful when discussing about hospice care.
1. When do you call for hospice care?
There has to be someone in the family who should make the hospice call. There should be a clearly set guidelines to clearly assess if hospice care is the best option and if it is the right time to call for hospice.
2. What level of care would you need?
Infinite Hospice Care, Inc. offers a wide range of care programs depending on the level and scope of care needed. The discussion should include the kind of care you prefer, the people you want to administer, and the place you want to be in.
3. Are there spiritual beliefs or cultural norms that should be considered?
Since hospice care would involve caring during and after the loss, things like customs and other traditions should be discussed so these things can be considered in the care plan.
4. What are other considerations?
It is best to discuss other important things like finances, logistics, other challenges and specific support you may need from the hospice team.
