It’s never too early to talk about end-of-life care. For someone facing a terminal illness, most patients do not want to be a burden on family and loved ones. It can be a relief to know your wishes will be followed.
For family, let your loved one understand that the greatest gift they can give is the ability to spend as much quality time with each other as possible. Knowing the decisions are made and the worry about making tough choices in time of distress is lifted. Hospice supports the entire family so everyone is able to focus on what matters most.
