Modern medicine has always focused on the cure. But what if there is no cure? In the past we used to be told , “Nothing more can be done.” With hospice, there is much more that can be done.
Anyone with a progressive, life-limiting illness or condition may be appropriate for hospice. A patient themselves, a loved-one, or their physician may recommend it. Patients of any age with any end-stage illness can be referred. The sooner the patient is referred, the better. Many say the only regret they have about hospice is they didn’t call sooner.
CompassionCare Hospice responds within 30 minutes after a referral is received. Our Admission Nurse Specialists are available to answer any questions you and your family have and help you understand the nature of your illness, and how to have the best quality of life possible.
