What is Hospice?
Hospice is a way of caring for patients and their families when they are facing the end stages of life due to illness. Hospice is not a place, nor a treatment. Hospice provides this care wherever home may be. The focus of hospice is to provide symptom management and pain control as palliative care in an effort to improve a person’s quality of life. In addition, hospice provides support for the family through education, counseling, and presence.
Why Use Hospice?
