Placing a loved one in hospice care is one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make. You and your family are already experiencing so much sadness, stress, and other emotional and financial pain. You’ll want the transition to hospice services to be as smooth and painless as possible to prevent any further strain on your loved one and the rest of your family members.
Naturally, there is a lot of thought and care that needs to be put into the decision for hospice services. You will probably want to enlist the services of an attorney who is well-versed in elder law, real estate law, and any other areas that will pertain directly to your situation.
Throughout the entire process, it’s crucial that you never forget the wishes of your dying loved one.
If they can’t vocalize their needs or wants, you will have to exercise your best judgment to determine the best plan of care for them. Remember what they enjoyed and what values they held dear. All of these factors are very important when choosing end-of-life care for your loved one. You want them to be as comfortable and peaceful as possible.
