Some folks are just not ready to move in to hospice theory of care. There is a dilemma in their thought process, perhaps it is just plain old grief, that prevents them from seeing the beauty and the help that comes with end of life care.
One sure fact is that families/clients whom are not accepting of their prognosis or the theory of hospice care should not be pushed in to any decision to sign on to a hospice team.
One goal in hospice care is to help, to partner, to come along side their journey of end of life issues…NOT to fight against or NOT to have to pull or push the hearts and minds of people. Death will come whether some one is on hospice or not.
When some folks are just not ready…they are just not ready.
