At any time during a life-limiting illness, it's appropriate to discuss all of a patient's care options, including hospice. If you are thinking about calling, then now is the right time.
A caring professional from Butte Hospice can come speak with you and your family about hospice care and whether it is the right choice for you. Of course, there is no obligation, only information during these consultations.
Hospice is not just for people with end-stage cancer. Hospice can help people with a variety of life-limiting conditions when symptoms no longer respond to curative treatment.
Visit the Common Hospice Diagnoses page to learn more details about when hospice might be appropriate.
