Understanding Your Loved One’s Hospice Care

Funeral services aren’t always arranged after a loved one has passed. Sometimes, it makes sense to pre-plan a funeral, such as when a loved one has entered into hospice care. There are plenty of misconceptions about hospice care, such as that it shortens life or that it’s akin to “giving up.” Watch this video to find out the truth about hospice care.

You’ll learn that hospice providers focus on supporting quality of life for the patient and his or her family. Hospice provides medical services that are intended to address pain and other symptoms, but are not intended to treat the illness. With hospice care, your loved one can enjoy the remainder of life with dignity.
