Mississippi - Hospice
When end-of-life preparations are necessary for a family member, few people want to spend that time looking into care options. Early decisions about end-of-life wishes and care options will actually save you from having to spend that precious time sorting through information when you would rather be with your loved one. Care.com can help you figure out the best plan options.
Hospice is one of the most common options when an individual has a prognosis of less than six months to live. Hospice, with its palliative care focus, aims to keep individuals comfortable and pain free rather than continuing with intensive medical treatment. Administered in a private home, a nursing home, or a hospice facility, hospice care is done with the comfort of the patient in mind.

A family who has a plan early on will ultimately have much more time to celebrate the life of a loved one as their life comes to a close.
