Myth: Hospice is for people who have no hope.

When you choose hospice care, you’re not giving up…you are taking charge of how you wish to spend the rest of your life. Because patients get substantial relief from pain and other symptoms – and their families are supported by a caring hospice team – they can share quality family time and have a meaningful, dignified and peaceful end-of-life experience. And this is what most people hope for.

Not everything you hear about hospice care is true.
