When is it Time to Call

It is time to call hospice when it has been determined that there is no cure for an illness, when the person with the life-limiting illness decides to stop seeking aggressive treatment or when their health is progressively declining, despite treatment. The focus of hospice is to provide pain relief and symptom management, decrease hospitalizations and provide care and support to a family member or caregiver.
