Here are the answers you need to help you decide whether hospice care at home is right for you or your loved one.
At-home hospice care, also called end-of-life care, is care aimed at increasing the comfort and quality of life for people who have less than 6 months to live and have stopped treatments that could extend the length of their life such as dialysis, chemotherapy, or radiation.
To qualify for hospice care at home, a hospice doctor and your doctor (if you have one) must certify that you’re terminally ill and have a life expectancy of 6 months or less.
With hospice care at home, the patient has a primary caretaker, usually a friend or family member. In addition, the patient will have a team that works together to meet physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. This team may include a doctor, nurse, counselor, home health aide, social worker, chaplain (if you’re religious), and trained volunteers.
