5 reasons to start hospice sooner than you think

Contrary to myth, hospice care is not just for the final days of life. Although many families don’t call hospice until a loved one’s passing is imminent, many say they wish they’d known about hospice sooner.

“HopeHealth gave our family love and grace"

Jon Wish and Ann Wish say they are grateful to HopeHealth for making the end of their mother’s life “really joyous.”

“We wanted to transition mom in the most graceful and loving way possible. That is what [HopeHealth] gave us: love and grace,” Ann explains.

Hear Jon and Ann’s story.

“From the minute we walked through the door [at the HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center], we felt hugged – and secure in the knowledge our loved one would be tended to with the utmost respect and dignity. The physical, emotional and spiritual comfort you provided, and witnessing the peace that came to our loved one at day’s end, have allowed me to be at peace as well.”
