We understand that those with terminal illness and those around the patient are going through a tough time, so we are here to help guide you to what type of questions to ask when it comes to hospice care. The American Cancer Association provided a great list of topic that should be understood before picking your care of choice. First, know that the agency you are contacting is accredited and certified for hospice care, and if the state requires a license for such care, ask for it. It is also a good idea to find out references on the company, from sources such as the Better Business Bureau, or even previous customers. After that, you should ask questions about the care services and the cost of the program, as well as who the main caregivers might be for the patient. Lastly, are there emergency plans when there are natural, such as earthquakes and storms. It is also important to understand the rights of the patient. There are legal protection for someone who are terminally ill and receiving such care. So, consider these topics to ask when thinking about hospice care for your loved ones.
