Hour 2 Seg 2 – “Senior Moment”/Family Hospice Care Segment

Dr. Howard Cohen
– Seniors become more dehydrated, stay in more because of the heat, don’t eat correctly, etc.,
– Requirements for Hospice Care….1. Must be evaluated by a hospice professional. 2. Must have a terminal illness w/ a life expectancy of 6 months or less. 3. Hospice is paid by Medicare.
– Best to keep patients in their regular routine, regular discipline and comfort zone, so hospice accomplishes that.
– Unfortunately patients sometimes fight going into hospice because they think it means immediate death, but folks can be discharged from hospice if they improve.
