Call Us Now: Crossroads Hospice Hotline is Here for You 24/7

We wish we’d known about hospice sooner.

That’s the one thing we consistently hear from families—but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Hospice is a philosophy of care. When a patient chooses hospice, the focus is on quality of life but clinical care is still a part of the care plan. Patients and their families are surrounded by a team of professionals—everyone from doctors and nurses to chaplains and counselors—who address physical needs as well as emotional and spiritual issues. Research shows that 74 percent of patients who enter hospice experience a comfortable pain level within 48 hours. It’s never too early to start thinking about whether hospice is right for your family.

November is National Hospice Awareness Month and Crossroads Hospice invites you to use this time to call our hotline with your questions about how hospice works. Ask us about the right time for hospice. Talk to us about your family’s needs. Share a story about your patient’s quality of life.

Our toll-free Hospice Hotline will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the month of November. Please give us a call at 855-FAQ-HOSPICE (327-4677). We’re here for you.

Five Gifts for the Family Caregiver

Posted on November 20, 2014

You might know someone who’s a caregiver. They gracefully fill every hour of every day with caring for a loved one, managing a household and juggling work, bills and childcare. They somehow squeeze it all in, leaving little time for themselves. If this sounds like someone you know, this holiday season, remind them that you're there to help and that self-care is essential. Give them a gift to help them care for themselves.
