The most common diagnoses among hospice patients are cancer, heart disease, and lung disease. According to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, cancer accounts for approximately 30% of hospice admissions, while heart and lung disease accounts for approximately 15%. Other common diagnoses among hospice patients include dementia, stroke, liver disease, kidney disease, and HIV/AIDS. However, hospice care can be provided to people with severe or life-limiting illnesses, regardless of their diagnosis. Hospice care focuses on providing comfort, support, and dignity to patients and their family during their final days.
