+ Do I need a 24-hour caregiver?
Not necessarily. Bonita Springs Hospice Care supports a patient’s desire to live as independently as possible for as long as possible and many hospice patients do not initially require additional caregivers. However, the help of family, friends, and/or outside caregivers becomes invaluable as your physical condition declines. Hospice staff will work with you to monitor your safety and will help you plan ahead for the time when additional caregiving becomes necessary.
