To Therapists

What do I do now? Often, this is a question you get from clients or patients. They have just received a life-limiting diagnosis and seek your advice to help make appropriate choices for end-of-life care.

As part of our ongoing educational program to expand understanding of hospice care in your community, we will be encouraging them to ask you the following questions.

  • Have you worked with others who had this disease?
  • How does the prognosis of this disease affect treatments?
  • Will your therapy slow the disease process?
  • How frequently should we schedule treatments?
  • What side effects may occur during treatment, when will they begin, and how will you help me deal with them?
  • What's your experience with hospice care?
  • Why would we choose hospice?
  • Which local hospice providers do you recommend, and why?
