Your loved one is slowing down. She may be needing significant help with bathing and feeding herself. He may need continuous oxygen or have difficulty swallowing. A physician has mentioned looking at comfort care instead of curative care. As you consider these changing realities for you and your family, know that hospice care is here to lift some of the heaviness so that you can be wholly present to enjoy the time you have together.

Signs It May Be Time For Hospice

Inspired by the kindness, empathy and love of Christ, we're honored to help your loved one through the final chapter of their life.

  • Unintentional weight loss in the last six months.
  • Frequent hospitalizations or Emergency Room visits.
  • Repeat infections (pneumonia, bronchitis, urinary tract infections).
  • Multiple medical problems or diagnoses.
