One Reason

Some folks just can not reconcile the inevitable fact of a person dying. The obvious fact of death coming soon will not motivate or prepare them for engaging in end-of-life preparations. It isn’t necessarily denial, but a no thank you, I am not going to approach my loved one’s death by embracing the dying part of their life.

And so…this is one reason 1/3rd of the clients receiving hospice will die within 7 days of the start of care. These are the clients and family members who do not get the full benefit of the team, a benefit that peaks near 60 days of service.
