NHPCO Consumer Guide to Selecting a Hospice Program

HOSPICE - It's About How You LIVE

One of our greatest fears is dying alone in a sterile, impersonal surrouding.

- We don't want to be hooked up to tubes, and cut off from our family, friends, and loved ones, and things that are familiar.

- We also fear dying in pain.

- We would prefer, if possible, to spend our final phase of life at home - pain-free and alert as possible - surrounded by the people and things we love.

An end-of-life care option that provides dying patients and their loved ones with comfort, compassion, and dignity does exist. It's called hospice.

This brochure will help you learn more about hospice so you and your loved ones can make an education decision about end-of-life care. It contains information on what hospice is, what services are provided, and the key questions to asked when selecting a hospice program. The brochure will help you choose a hospice program that best suits your needs and wishes, as well as those of your loved ones.
