As a culture, we avoid thinking about death. In reality, it may be better to not just think about it, but create an end-of-life plan much like one should create a will. Hospice care should be included in the plans of those who would prefer to spend their final days without medical intervention.
Hospice care is different from hospital care, focusing on the unfolding of natural processes, while supporting the dying person as well as their loved ones. A hospital setting can be beneficial in many ways. However, a person may prefer to be in a quiet and comfortable place surrounded by loved ones.
Many people don’t quite have a full understanding of what hospice is and how it works. Here are 10 facts to help uncover common myths associated with hospice care.
