If your physician has recommended hospice for you or a family member, you likely have lots of questions concerning such things as how much it costs, how you enroll, and how you can pay for it. Oftentimes, planning for a loved one who has a terminal illness can be complicated and emotionally draining.
It is not uncommon to feel that if you agree to enroll in hospice and/or take the step of putting final wishes into a Will or Trust, that you are somehow conceding your fight with the disease. However, hospice programs encourage patients to make the most of living and enjoying what may be the patient’s last months. While hospice treatment can go on for years, in reality, the patient is dealing with a terminal illness, and they need to get their affairs in order. There are steps which should be taken now to ensure that everyone is protected.
