A patient  with cancer may be eligible for hospice care if he or she has one or more of these:

  • Cancer spreading to other organs in the body
  • Uncontrolled symptoms associated with the cancer (like pain or nausea)
  • Chemotherapy and/or radiation-therapy no longer effective or not an option
  • Weight loss
  • Difficulty managing activities of daily living (dressing/bathing/grooming)
  • Frequent infections
  • Patient/family decide to no longer pursue aggressive treatment
(Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)

I want to make a difference for those living with serious illness & loss in Montgomery County.
