Many experts recommend that you consult a mental health therapist, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, or social worker before deciding to enter hospice care. 

Discussing end-of-life issues can be difficult. Open communication can reduce stress, fear of the unknown, and strengthen your coping skills.
