Who makes the decision to bring in Hospice of Arizona?
A lot of people think that the doctor's are the ones that decide to bring in Hospice when in reality it's the patients making that decision. Linda recommends that everyone should have that conversation with their loved ones now when you're healthy and are able to make those decisions. Tell your family, tell your doctor and write your wishes down. In the long run you'll be provided with the best care for a painless and comfortable passing and your family won't feel guilty for having to decide on your behalf. And, in some instances patients check into Hospice services and end up getting better and leaving several times. It's really a patient decision.
