Hospice At-Home For Patients With Lung Disease

Living with lung disease, especially in its advanced stages, can be a challenging journey, especially as it progresses. It can feel like your whole world revolves around breathing, leaving you feeling exhausted and worried about what the future holds. If you or a loved one is facing this tough journey, Agape Hospice & Palliative Care is here to help. We offer compassionate, personalized hospice care for lung disease patients and their families in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Our goal is to provide comfort, dignity, and the best possible quality of life.

Hospice: It’s Not Giving Up, It’s Choosing Comfort

Hospice isn’t about giving up on life; it’s about embracing a different kind of care that prioritizes comfort, peace, and making the most of the time you have left. Hospice care is all about providing comfort and support to individuals with terminal illnesses, such as advanced lung disease. It focuses on improving the quality of life by managing pain and symptoms, offering emotional and spiritual support, and assisting with daily activities. At Agape Hospice & Palliative Care, our team of doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, and spiritual advisors work together to deliver comprehensive, holistic care.

When is Hospice Called in for Lung Disease?

Deciding when to start hospice is a personal choice, but it’s generally considered when a person has six months or less to live if their disease follows its usual course. However, you can receive hospice care for as long as you need it, even if your condition changes. If you’re struggling with worsening symptoms, frequent hospitalizations, or just feeling overwhelmed, it’s worth talking to your doctor about hospice care.
