How Do I Know When It's Time for Palliative Care or Hospice?
The decision of when to pursue palliative care or hospice is a difficult one, and the answer can vary greatly depending on the individual's situation. Generally speaking, dementia home care should be considered when a person with dementia begins exhibiting symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, falls and fractures, increased confusion and agitation, and increased dementia-related behaviors (such as wandering, seeing or hearing things that are not there, etc). If a dementia patient is no longer able to take care of their own basic needs such as eating, bathing, and toileting without assistance then it may be time to consider dementia homecare or hospice.
