Talking to Your Doctor or Family
Begin the Discussion About End-of-Life Caregiving
Choosing hospice care in NJ is a difficult decision, but it’s one that can make end-of-life care more peaceful and meaningful. Visiting Nurse Association Health Group offers a compassionate end-of-life caregiving experience that’s focused on comfort instead of cures. It can be difficult to make the choice to enter the program, and to convey that decision to family members and loved ones.
If you are considering hospice care, first talk to your doctor. Speak openly about your feelings and develop a good understanding of your doctor's philosophy about end-of-life hospice care. Talking about the decision with family members and friends can also alleviate some of the tension that can come with choosing hospice care. It can also give them peace of mind because hospice services follow up on the bereaved after a loved one has passed, offering grief counseling and bereavement support groups—an integral layer of support that can often be overlooked.
