For individuals and families to choose hospice care is an important decision that can add life to each and every day for someone with a life-limiting illness, in addition to providing support to the family during this difficult time. One of the best ways to choose a hospice is to ask questions. A local hospice provider should be more than willing to help individuals understand the available services and how they might be appropriate for your situation.
Q. What is hospice?
A. Hospice offers palliative care that seeks to comfort, rather than cure. Palliative Care is intended for individuals with an incurable disease resulting in a limited life expectancy that is certified by a physician. Hospice offers comprehensive, compassionate care coordinated by your attending physician, our medical director, and an interdisciplinary group to provide for the physical, psychosocial, spiritual and emotional needs of our patients and their family members.
