Have I selected the proper end-of-life care options for my loved one or for myself? The answer to that question can be difficult to answer.

Hospice of the Midwest understands that it is important to thoroughly research the many different hospices in the community before choosing one. Hospices are not all the same, and no one should have to settle for one that is not the best choice.

Hospice of the Midwest is dedicated to educating patients, families, and the community about end-of-life care and helping them with care decisions. We are available to discuss your specific situation and the options available to you. If you find that hospice care is not right at this time, there are other resources available in the community, such as home health or in-home aide services available to qualified individuals.
