Palliative Care, Hospice and End of Life Choices

Hospice is generally thought of as the last resort for someone near death. But hospice services are increasingly being used by elder law clients as a way to increase quality of care for their loved ones living in a care facility. What are the ramifications of this as attorneys seeking to educate our clients on their rights, options and limitations? How does the care industry handle coordination of care once hospice has been added to a patient’s services?

This CLE will consist of a discussion between an experienced medical professional and an elder law attorney who will talk about the various issues that come up around hospice care and what future developments/improvements could look like. We will emphasize what palliative care and hospice are (and aren’t) as well as the Hospice Bill of Rights for patients and the advantages and consequences to consider when deciding to start hospice services.

This CLE is approved for credit through July 13, 2024.
