Estate & Asset Protection Attorney and Owner, Shannon Pawley, writes about why there is a growing need to know about hospice care and provides and overview for her readers.
DECATUR, GA, December 20, 2021: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on the law firm’s website entitled “What Is Hospice And How Does It Work,” in which Ms. Pawley prepares readers to better understand what hospice care is designed to do.
Pawley writes, “Hospice is a word we’ve all heard and have probably formed an opinion about.” She adds, “However, until someone you know has been the recipient of hospice care, you probably don’t really know much about it and how it works.”
According to Pawley, “As the Baby Boomer generation approaches retirement age – the group currently numbers around 70 million and is now between 57 and 75 years of age – it becomes important to understand what hospice is and when you or a loved ones might need it.” She clarifies, “While age is not at all a determining factor for hospice care as you’ll see, I hope the information I’m providing helps deepen your understanding.”
Pawley explains, “Hospice is for patients whose doctor formally confirms that they are not expected to live longer than six months. Of course, sometimes the person lives longer than six months and remains in hospice care. However,” she continues, “hospice focuses on treating symptoms, not curing an illness.” She further states, “Hospice care is specifically designed to improve the quality of life for patients and their families facing the problems that come along with life-threatening illnesses.”
“When someone receives hospice care,” Pawley states, “they are served by an entire team with special skills. On the team are nurses, doctors, social workers, spiritual advisors, as well as trained volunteers.” She elaborates, “Everyone on the team works together with the person who is dying, the caregiver, and/or the family to provide the medical, emotional, and spiritual support need. That care is available in some form around the clock. Typically,” she adds, “you’ll have a specific member of the hospice team who visits regularly, and someone is usually available by phone — 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
