Hospice of Natchitoches was a wonderful help to us. My mother's passing occurred of Easter weekend and they were there for us when we needed them.

How do I identify a potential hospice patient?

  • Terminal diagnosis with probable prognosis of 6 months or less
  • Frequent hospitalizations or emergency room visits
  • Recurrent infections in last 6 months
  • Weight loss of 10% or more in last 6 months
  • Patient refuses hospitalization, aggressive treatment, or PEG tube placement
  • Home health patient in declining status
