When to consider hospice

Hospice care becomes appropriate for patients when treatment is no longer effective at controlling the course of their illness. Oftentimes, the decision to enter into hospice care is a joint decision made by the medical care team and the patient and/or the patient’s family.

Patients receiving total parenteral nutrition (TPN), dialysis, chemotherapy or radiation as palliative measures are admissible for hospice care. Patients and family members should feel free to open the discussion of hospice care at any time during a life-limiting illness.
