Hospice care is for people with a life-limiting illness who want comfort care rather than curative treatment. It is time to consider hospice care when one or more of these circumstances apply:

• Loss of function and physical decline

• Increase in hospitalizations

• Dependence in most activities of daily living, such as toileting, feeding, dressing

• Increase in emergency room visits

• Continuing weight loss, more than 10% of previous body weight

• Multiple diseases

Each disease has its own Medicare criteria for hospice eligibility, but there must be a life-limiting illness and all parties need to agree that hospice care is appropriate.
