How does a family know when their loved one is nearing death and could benefit from hospice services?
Montgomery Hospice and Prince George’s Hospice doctors and nurses are familiar with symptoms that indicate that a person may qualify for hospice benefits. The symptoms are different depending on the disease, but often include things such as significant weight loss, a decrease in ability to participate in normal daily activities or multiple trips to the hospital in a short period of time.
