About This Checklist
Hospice and Palliative Care Comparison Checklist Overview
The Palliative and Hospice Care Comparison Checklist has direct questions and suggested actions which will provide important information and guidance for the fact-based Palliative and Hospice Care decision making process. When it’s time to compare options and make a decision, it can be risky to rely on your memory alone and possibly confuse one option or agency for another. Additionally, using the checklist helps eliminate emotional or impulse decisions an allows for a smoother transition. Once you or your loved one has made the Palliative or Hospice provider decision, you do not want to regret your choice.
The Palliative and Hospice Comparison Checklist is a tool that relies on the author’s experience as a caregiver. Typically, when someone needs to choose a Palliative or Hospice Care Agency, either for themselves or a loved one, they haven’t had any past experience with this type of living or decision making, in other words, they don’t know what to expect.
It can be very emotional and overwhelming deciding to hire a Palliative Care or Hospice Care provider and especially if you don’t know the right questions to ask, have a way to organize your answers and compare your options. Making an uneducated and/or emotional decision is risky and the stakes are high. When embarking on this decision-making process, with all of the best intentions, you still don’t know what you don’t know!! So instead of make a decision based on fear, hearsay or a random selection, you’ll now be able to make decisions based on facts.
The Palliative Care and Hospice Care Comparison Checklist was created from years of experience; those experiences were organized into a framework which allows for multiple providers to be reviewed, priorities to be set and a selection made that is best for all involved, especially the person(s) that will be receiving the care.
