Hospice care is team-oriented care for
people with a life-limiting illness or injury, most often called for
when there is a life expectancy of six months or less. Hospice care is
typically a team approach that includes medical care, pain management,
emotional and spiritual support, and support to a dying person's loved
ones. A hospice team can include doctors, nurses, home health aides,
hospice workers, grief counselors, chaplains and family members.
Many people believe home hospice services provide round-the-clock care. Unfortunately this is not the case. Often, hospice services offer an hour or two of care per day, plus a weekly check-in by a nurse. And some hospice programs won't accept patients who don't have a full-time caregiver at home.
