Patients with advanced, life-limiting illnesses can greatly benefit from hospice care. In fact, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) encourages providers to make early referrals for hospice care, as it:
May extend the patient’s life longer than it would be with conventional care.
Reduces risk of complications with grief.
Allows the patient and family time to communicate about needs and wishes.
Ensures that the patient’s needs are heard and honored.
