When is is time for end-stage Pulmonary Disease hospice care?
Answering these questions may serve as a guide:
- Have you (or a loved one) made several trips every few months to the emergency room for respiratory failure or lung infections?
- Have you (or a loved one) been repeatedly hospitalized every few months and no longer wish to be hospitalized?
- Do you (or a loved one) no longer wish to be intubated?
- Are you (or your loved one) ready to seek “aggressive comfort care” instead of aggressive treatment?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, now may be an appropriate time to discuss Longleaf Hospice with your physician or one of our clinical professionals. Feel free to call us directly at 770-939-9179.
