Community Education: The Time of Your Life – Knowing When to Start Comfort Care/Hospice
April 12 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
In these challenging times, it’s important to know that you have an option that can help your loved one get the most out of life and live as fully and as comfortable as possible.
Jennifer Lakin, Hospice Care Consultant of Kindred Hospice will discuss the benefits of an earlier admission to hospice for the patient and family. You will learn how a patient admitted with a likely prognosis of months can achieve greater benefits with supportive relationships and improved care compared to someone admitted with a prognosis of only weeks or days, when there is insufficient time to do more than just manage immediate care needs. We will also discuss quality of life vs the quantity of days left. Lastly, we will talk about key indicators of Hospice Eligibility and what to expect upon admission.
