Rhode Island - Hospice Care

Hospice Care

It is always extremely difficult to see a loved one age, and it is even harder to begin discussing end-of-life preparation. Conversations regarding end-of-life planning may be awkward and tough, but it is very important to be prepared. Families may consider Hospice care when their loved one receives a life-limiting diagnosis. Hospice can take place in an individual's home, an assisted living community or a nursing home and provides palliative care, nursing care, personal care services, and access to 24-hour medical staff. Read Care.com's article on the pros and cons of hospice care to find out if this is a good choice for your family. Our site can connect you to local hospice centers, senior caregivers, support groups and services, and organizations dedicated to end-of-life care.
