Is there such a thing as waiting too long to use hospice?

Sharing a ConsumerReports.com article about “how waiting too long to use hospice care can make suffering at end-of-life worse.”

According to the article:
Many people who are near the end of life wait too long to enter hospice care, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.

In hospice care, attempts to cure a disease are usually replaced with treatments solely for pain and suffering, delivered by a specialized team. It usually includes medical and nursing care, counseling and social services, and it can be given at home, in a nursing home or in a hospital facility.

Community Partnership, Makes a Lasting Difference

Suncrest Hospice of Colorado-Pueblo partnered with the Boys and Girls Club & Rock Canyon Respiratory and Rehabilitation Center, to provide a fun hour of BINGO.
 
Pueblo teens from the Boys and Girls Club joined residents and became their hands, eyes and ears marking off squares as each letter and number were called. It was a wonderful opportunity for two generations to come together in laughter, communication and fun. We are grateful for the teen volunteers and hope to work with them again in the near future.
