I was wondering if someone is put on hospice, is there any chance that they are ever taken off it? I was put on hospice two weeks ago and I have gained strength and just curious.
Can a hospice patient who shows signs of recovery be returned to regular medical treatment?
Certainly. If the patient’s condition improves and the disease seems to be in remission, patients can be discharged from hospice and return to aggressive therapy or go on about their daily life. If the discharged patient should later need to return to hospice care, Medicare and most private insurance will allow additional coverage for this purpose.

You and your doctor are the best determiners of what kind of care you need.

Yes! My Mother was on Hospice three different times. She would feel better and stronger and then be discharged.......
