Call Us Early
A very good rule is to call Hospice sooner rather than later. The Hospice of North Ottawa Community team can assist patients and families in many ways -- medically, psychologically, and spiritually -- and much more effectively when there is time.
The team can certainly help if they are called in during the last few days of a person's life, but early involvement allows the Hospice team to benefit the patient and family more comprehensively.
Anyone can call Hospice of North Ottawa Community for help deciding whether Hospice care is appropriate. Call (616) 846-2015.
