Choosing a Hospice

There may be one hospice organization or several in your community.  It is important to find out about the services that each hospice offers.  If there are several hospices that serve your area, you may want to speak with some of them and/or ask your health care provider if they have recommendations for selecting a hospice.  You may decide to request services from a particular hospice; be sure to communicate that request to your physician.

The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization has developed some questions to help identify factors that may be important to you and your family when selecting a hospice.
