+ Who makes the decisions regarding my hospice care while I am on hospice?

You do. Hospice care is often described as patient-driven and physician-directed. Hospice helps you and your family to determine and accomplish your end-of-life goals which may include pain management, recording a life history, or attending a special event, such as your child’s graduation. Patients and their families are at the center of the hospice plan of care and are the most important members of the care team.
