Hospice

Care and Comfort When it's Needed Most

What is Hospice? It’s more a concept of care than a specific place. Hospice provides palliative care including pain and symptom management as well as psychosocial, spiritual and bereavement support to a patient and family.  Usually hospice provides specialized care for dying patients whose life expectancy is six months or less. The goal is to enable them to live their end days to the fullest, with purpose, dignity, grace and support. Hospice care is provided by a team of professionals in the home, nursing home or inpatient setting.  Services may include nursing, home health aides, medications, medical equipment and supplies.  Physician consultation and visits are available when needed.
