Depending on your location there could be one or several hospices in your community. If you live in Nevada your options are abundant and making the right choice for you and your loved one can become stressful. Hospice is compassionate care focused on comfort and quality of life. It’s care is unique to each individual. Understanding hospice prepares patients and loved ones for what is ahead. There are common questions for individuals and loved ones facing life-limiting illnesses that can help lead you toward the right choice.
Determining if a hospice is right for you may best be learned from calling different hospices and asking them about their services.
Is the hospice Medicare certified? Has the hospice been surveyed by a state or federal oversight agency in the last 5 years? (ask about surveys and deficiencies noted). Is the hospice accredited by a national organization?
