Hospice care is a type of care option geared towards individuals who are nearing the end of life. It can be provided at a skilled nursing facility or the patient’s home and focuses on improving the patient’s quality of life. However, many patients and families often wait until the last minute to receive hospice services.

As a hospice agency in Vallejo, California, we will discuss the benefits of early admission to hospice care:

  • Better Pain and Symptom Management

    With early admission, the hospice staff has more time to care for the patient. This provides the opportunity to provide individualized pain and symptom management. Since the staff can get to know the patient better, they can also adjust medications over time to provide as much comfort and relief as possible.

  • Fewer Hospital Admissions

    With a hospice care provider, patients receive care and support at home, which reduces the need for unnecessary hospital or ICU admissions. Early admission to hospice also provides patients with access to helpful medical supplies and equipment to better manage their needs at home.

  • Improved Quality of Life

    Hospice care focuses on the patient’s overall well-being, which improves their quality of life. This also gives patients the opportunity to spend quality time with their loved ones. Moreover, early admission to hospice can also include services like light housekeeping and assistance with daily living activities to help ease some of the stress of caregiving.
