Abstract

When discussing hospice care with physical therapy (PT) students, other healthcare professionals, patients, and families, they often ask: What do you do with a hospice patient? What goals can they actually achieve? What rehab potential do they actually have? My answer is: What does the patient want to be able to do? How does he or she want to improve his or her mobility? Hospice PT is all about the quality of the end of a patient's life.
