When can I start hospice?

Hospice care begins when you choose to begin.

You – with your physician and family – decide when hospice care begins. Hospice care ease not just final days, but final months.

Many people are surprised to learn that hospice care can begin months before the end of life. In fact, oftentimes we hear from patients and families (once they are receiving hospice care) that they wished they had started hospice sooner.
