Choosing hospice services for you or your loved one is one of the most important decisions you will ever have to make.
Hospice of the Western Reserve does not seek to hasten or postpone death, however studies show that people who receive hospice care live longer, even experiencing joy in the final stage of life. Care should be sought sooner rather than later in the course of a serious or terminal illness -- not just that last days or weeks of life -- to
benefit from the full realm of services.
To access hospice care, the patient's primary care physician must believe his or her life expectancy is months rather than years. The doctor may continue to assume responsibility for medical care.
Hospice of the Western Reserve team members work with the doctor, serving as liaisons for our patients and families.
