Patients with respiratory illnesses like emphysema or pulmonary fibrosis can benefit a great deal from hospice care. Respiratory illnesses can get suddenly worse, causing fear and anxiety along with severe shortness of breath. Hospice can help patients with these types of illnesses through symptom management and medication adjustments. Hospice care is available 24/7, so instead of going to the hospital every time the illness flares up, patients can call on hospice and get help at home.
