Benefits of Early Admission to Hospice Care
Nearly all patients can receive hospice care as soon as their attending physician and hospice physician believe that they are most like to have less than 6 months to live. When pain and other symptoms are effectively controlled, people not only feel better, they live longer.
An article published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that “terminally ill patients who received palliative care services lived nearly three months longer and enjoyed an improved quality of life compared to those who did not receive the attention of a palliative care team.”
