Making an informed decision is the greatest gift you can give to your loved ones.
Understanding what hospice and palliative care are and what’s involved can be confusing. You may be learning about them for the first time while you’re faced with making life changing decisions.
Horizon Hospice is ready to have to have that conversation with you so you can take the next steps for your loved one’s care with confidence.
When a loved one gets a prognosis of six months of life or less, hospice care is recommended by a physician. Hospice care focuses on giving your loved one maximum comfort each day.
Palliative care is quality of life care for an individual facing a life-limiting disease. People given a palliative care recommendation can live for months or many years.
