What Is Hospice & How Can It Help?

Hospice is a philosophy of care that supports the mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of a patient and their family through the end-of-life journey. Our interdisciplinary team of hospice experts has one goal in mind—to enable patients to live their lives with meaning, dignity, and comfort wherever they call home.

Your personalized care plan may include:

  • Pain and symptom management
  • Much-needed support for loved ones
  • Medication, supplies, and equipment
  • Assistance with personal care
  • Nursing, aide, social work, therapy, and physician support
  • Short-term respite to relieve caregivers
  • Continuous care for acute symptoms
  • Holistic therapy options (check with your local office)
  • Grief counseling, bereavement services, and spiritual support regardless of religious affiliation

When Is The Right Time To Start Hospice Care?

Hospice is most beneficial when it is started as early as possible, so that you and your family can receive the maximum amount of care and support. Below are a few questions that may indicate it is time to consider hospice:

Have you or your loved one:

  • Seen a progression of a serious illness?
  • Had multiple trips to the hospital?
  • Had increased episodes of pain?
  • Had several falls in the last six months?
  • Had significant, unexplained weight loss?
  • Started spending most of the day in bed?
  • Had shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?Started to feel that treatment is becoming more of a burden than a benefit?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, MUSC Health | Hospice At Home by BAYADA care could help you.
