When is the right time for hospice?

Now is always the best time to learn more about hospice and ask questions about what to expect from hospice services.  Although end-of-life care may be difficult to discuss, it is best for family members to share their wishes long before it becomes a concern.  This can greatly reduce stress when the time for hospice is needed.  By having these discussions in advance, patients are not forced into uncomfortable situations.  Instead, patients can make an educated decision that includes the advice and input of family members and loved ones.


At Hospice of Southwest Ohio, we believe you deserve to “Voice Your Choice” when it comes to end-of-life care. Through our Voice Your Choice program, we encourage you to talk with your family and loved ones about your wishes. Our program provides educational resources to help you start the conversation and walk you through the process.
