When a loved one needs end-of-life care or hospice care in Memphis, you will likely have many questions about what your options are. This video can help you make important decisions about hospice care.

End-of-life care can be provided in a number of different ways, including in hospice facilities, but many families find that the best hospice care is provided at home. With in-home hospice care, your loved one gets to spend his or her final days in the comfort of familiar surroundings while getting necessary care and support. Look for home health care providers who have experience providing this kind of care. Home care and hospice work together to make sure that the patient is getting all the care they need. When hospice can’t be there all the time home care providers can be there up to 24-hours a day to make sure your loved ones are getting the full care they need. Hospice care is about caring for the patient as well his or her family, so ensure that the program you are considering also provides support for family members during the hospice period.
