End of Life Treatment Planning

You Have A Choice

People smiling at one another

During the difficult last stages of a serious illness, many patients and families feel that they have lost control over their lives and don't realize that they can regain it by recruiting the help of hospice care.

At Soulistic Hospice, our patients and their family members are given the assistance they need to feel supported while making decisions that are important to them, including an end-of-life care plan.

Taking back this control is especially beneficial to patients facing their last year of life. Instead of spending time in and out of the hospital, they can spend it with their family and loved ones in their own home.

Developing an end-of-life treatment plan helps ensure that your wishes are followed and you receive the best quality of life until the very end. We can help by documenting your wishes and advocating for them, including:

  • Advanced directives, including do-not-resuscitate
  • Choosing a funeral home
  • Bereavement support for your loved ones

When patients feel heard, supported, and cared for, their conditions often improve and some will be able to return to curative treatment.

We take pride in knowing that our end-of-life care plans help our patients feel better prepared to move on from this life, and their families and friends feel better equipped to handle their loss. If patients can live a full-life, even until the end, we believe they can experience joy and find peace, even amidst pain and sorrow.
