The conversation about a hospice referral is difficult for many families. Here are some thoughts that may be helpful to some families:
- Hospice’s highest priority is your comfort and quality of life.
- A recent study shows that patients on hospice actually live longer than similar patients who don’t receive hospice care.
- Sometimes hospice care helps stabilize patients and they are discharged from hospice.
A staff member from Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care can visit the patient and family at home, a nursing home, hospital or wherever is convenient to provide information and an assessment to see how our programs could help. There is no charge or obligation for an information visit. Read more about the range of programs and services we offer
