When Does it Make Sense to Start Considering Hospice Care for Your Elderly Loved One?

Hospice Care in Los Angeles CA: When Does it Make Sense to Start Considering Hospice Care for Your Elderly Loved One?

Hospice Care in Los Angeles CA: When Does it Make Sense to Start Considering Hospice Care for Your Elderly Loved One?

If you’ve been wondering when you should start talking about or considering hospice care, the decision can feel overwhelming to you and your other family members. There’s really no hard and fast rule about this topic, so you may have to take several situations into consideration.

Her Health Is Shortening Her Life

With some health conditions, such as severe heart disease, your loved one’s life might be shortened by the health condition itself. In those cases, having the extra help that hospice can provide offers you and your loved one peace in those trying times.

You’re Overwhelmed Keeping up with Your Loved One’s End-of-life Care Needs

As your loved one’s health worsens, you as her family caregiver often has to do so much more in order to help her. You’re also processing your own emotions about this time in your loved one’s life, so it can all get to be a little much. Also, it’s likely that you’ve been caring for your loved one for quite a while now. Having someone to hand over your loved one’s care to can free you up to spend quality time with your loved one rather than running around being an overwhelmed caregiver.

Your Loved One Wants to Spend the Time She Has Left at Home

Many health conditions can culminate in longer and longer hospital stays. It’s possible that your loved one is tired of spending so much time at the hospital and she wants to spend what time she has left at home, with the people that she loves. Hospice care can do this for her while helping her to manage her health.

Your Loved One Is Ready for Hospice Care

At some point, your elderly loved one may simply be ready for hospice care. This is a personal decision and you may or may not be expecting your loved one to let you know that it’s time to look for help from hospice care providers. When your loved one is ready, she’ll find a way to let you know.

Be sure to include your elderly loved one, her doctors, other professionals, and other family members as necessary in your conversations about hospice care.
