When is it time for hospice?

Knowing when it’s time to consider hospice care for yourself or a loved one can be a difficult decision. Hospice care is typically appropriate when an individual has a terminal illness or a life-limiting condition and is no longer seeking curative treatment. If you or your loved one are experiencing worsening symptoms, declining functional status, or a decreased quality of life despite ongoing medical interventions, it may be time to consider hospice care.
