Hospice is simply a treatment option. As disease processes progress, we begin to weigh the "risk vs benefit" of medications or other treatments and assess how those treatments will impact longevity and quality life. Simply put, Hospice is not giving up on life. In fact, hospice is the act of choosing a treatment option that focuses on quality of life and symptoms management. And what about people with Alzheimer’s? How does that play into Hospice care? Participants will learn to describe the key components to the Medicare Hospice Benefit; describe the Hospice Philosophy; describe the tools used to determine Hospice Eligibility as it relates to Alzheimer's Disease/Dementia; Overcome common myths and misconceptions about Hospice. This presentation is free and everyone is welcome to attend. No preregistration required. Presented by Eva Stadthertr from Moments Hospice.
