Hospice

Hospice is a program of compassionate, family-centered care. It allows patients with a life-limiting illness or injury to remain at home, in greater control of their lives, surrounded by the people and things that give life meaning and comfort.

Since the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a terminal disease affect everyone in the home. Hospice care serves the entire family, not just the patient. It involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the person’s needs and wishes.

Why Hospice?

Hospice care is important because it provides many benefits that aren't possible in a traditional health-care setting. Through hospice, the family is directly involved in making decisions and in helping a person they love. Hospice enables people with terminal illnesses to make decisions about how and where they want to spend the rest of their lives.
