Expected Symptoms for Loved Ones Receiving Hospice


The TRANQUILITY HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE CARE team delivers the best possible end-of-life experience for each patient, family, and healthcare provider by creating an environment where we all strive to make every day count. Hence, we make it a point to educate and provide hospice and palliative care services to make the process comfortable and safe for everyone involved.

This discussion will talk about the common symptoms that most people who receive hospice care experience. Depending on the severity and nature of your loved one’s illness or condition, symptoms that are to be expected include:

  • Increased pain
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent infections
  • Shortness of breath
  • Recurrent doctor visits
  • Recurrent hospital visits
  • Decline in function
  • Decline in cognition

Knowing what to expect is crucial for you to prepare yourself during the entirety of your loved one’s journey receiving hospice services. Our team’s job is to keep the process as pain-free and manageable for your loved one as possible. It will be a challenge for all of us, but with the teamwork of your loved one’s doctors, nurses, and your support, you can give your family member the care needed as they journey to their end-of-life.
