Can you go on hospice and still continue dialysis?

It's a common myth that people who go into hospice and palliative care must stop the treatments that they are currently receiving.
Hospice provides care and services for patients based on their terminal diagnosis. Rest assured that hospice doctors and nurses do not want their patients to suffer.
You or your loved one would not have to stop dialysis in order to enter hospice care.
Please contact a hospice near you for more information. A directory of hospices can be found in this article:

I hope this has put your mind at ease.
