How to have the hospice talk.
Often times when loved ones of patients contact Crossroads Hospice in Kansas, they have questions about the best way to broach the subject of hospice. While it can potentially be a difficult or awkward conversation to have, it doesn’t necessarily have to be. Here are a few quick tips on having the hospice conversation:
- Ask the Patient About Their Wishes: Start by putting the patient in control. Ask them about what they hope to get out of their treatment and what is most important to them.
- Talk About the Benefits of Hospice: One of the greatest benefits of hospice care is significantly reduced pain, discomfort, and stress. Knowing what they want, you can now talk about how hospice can help give them that. For instance, if they say, “I just want to spend as much time as possible with my loved ones,” you can then discuss how hospice allows you to receive treatment at home.
- Speak with the Patient’s Primary Care Physician: The patient’s primary doctor may have recommendations as to how to best approach the topic of hospice. It’s also worth keeping in mind that the patient still gets to regularly see the primary care physician even after they choose hospice care.
