It’s never easy to think about losing a loved one and it is for this reason that many families put off any discussions about end-of-life care. But it might be time to consider hospice care services if your loved one is experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Frequent emergency room visits or hospital confinement
- Inability to perform activities of daily living such as eating, getting dressed, walking, or using the bathroom
- Increased incidence of falls
- Changes to their mental abilities
- Progressive weight loss
- Skin tears, infections, and other signs of deteriorating health
If you see any of these signs in your terminally ill loved one, the time to call for palliative care in Texas is now. Hospice care is an added layer of support for your loved one so they may live comfortably at home or a facility, should your loved one choose not to pursue curative treatment.
