End of Life Planning

You Have A Choice

People smiling at one another

During the difficult last stages of a serious illness, many patients and families feel that they have lost control over their lives and don't realize that they regain it by choosing hospice care.

Our patients and family members are given the opportunity to make decisions that are important to them.

Taking back control is especially beneficial to patients facing their last year of life. Instead of spending time in and out of the hospital, they can spend it with their family and loved ones in their own home.

Planning ahead helps ensure that your wishes are followed and you receive the best quality of life until the very end. We can help by documenting your wishes and advocating for them, including:

  • Advanced directives, including do-not-resuscitate
  • Choosing a funeral home
  • Bereavement support for your loved ones

When patients feel heard, supported, and cared for, their conditions often improve and some will be able to return to curative treatment.

We know that all of our patients are better prepared to move on from this life, and their families and friends are better equipped to handle their loss. If patients can live a full-life, even until the end, they can experience joy and find peace, even amidst pain and sorrow.
