What is Hospice?

What is hospice care?

Hospice Care provides comfort, pain and symptom management for a patient with a life limiting illness. Compassionate care and emotional support is offered to family, friends, and significant others. Not only can care be provided in the home, but also in a nursing home, an assisted living setting, a hospital and personal care homes.

Hospice affirms life and focuses on the quality of life remaining for your loved one. Hospice offers a holistic approach that is sensitive to emotional and spiritual support.

When to choose hospice care?

When a patient is diagnosed with a terminal illness and the prognosis is measured in months, it is then that hospice care should be considered. Patients have the right to choose the hospice of their choice.

How to obtain our services?

A physician orders hospice at the request of a patient, relative, friend, medical social worker or pastor. Ask your physician how we can help or call us direct to get more information about the services your loved ones deserve. Remember patients have the right to choose the hospice of their choice.
