Nevada Hospice Care offers its patients improved end-of-life benefits. The majority of people prefer hospice care when their loved ones are only a few days or hours away from the end of their life. Surveys and studies show that hospice care has enormous physical, mental, social, and financial benefits to patients and families. Yet, the median operating period is only about 24 days.
Because of the owners’ personal experience and learning about others’, we at Nevada Hospice Care feel it is vital that everyone in the community is educated about the details of end-of-life care. These services include hospice care and palliative care. Nevada Hospice Care encourages family members to ask questions, do your homework. This will ensure that you find out what you can do to make the right choice for yourself or your family members when the time comes.
If the patient is unable to partake in the discussion because his/her illness has become incapacitating, then the family and friends can decide what happens next. This is a lot of hard work, and it can become frustrating and stressful. More than likely, not everyone will come to terms with what is in the best interest of the patient. However, concentrating on the patients’ best interests and not of anyone else will narrow down your opinions. This is just one more reason why we stress the importance of an advance directive be taken into consideration before the patient is unable to make those decisions.
