Does hospice include psychological services?

The answer is YES, hospice care includes psychological services to support both patients and their families emotionally and mentally during the end-of-life process. These services typically encompass counseling, grief support, and therapy provided by licensed psychologists, social workers, and trained counselors. The aim is to address the emotional and psychological needs, helping individuals cope with the stress, anxiety, and grief associated with terminal illness and loss. Additionally, these services are designed to provide comfort and improve the quality of life for patients and their loved ones during a challenging time.
