A client with late-stage acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (aids)-rationale: hospices provide supportive, palliative care to terminally ill clients, such as those with late-stage aids, as well as their families. hospice services wouldnt be appropriate for a client with left-sided paralysis resulting from a stroke, a client whos undergoing treatment for heroin addiction, or one who recently had coronary artery bypass surgery because these health problems arent necessarily terminal.client needs category: health promotion and maintenanceclient needs subcategory: nonecognitive level: comprehensionreference: taylor, c., et al. fundamentals of nursing: the art and science of nursing care, 6th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2008, p. 159.
