WHAT IS HOSPICE?

Hospice is a specialized type of care for those facing a life-limiting illness and their families.

  • Hospice care addresses the patient’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.

  • Hospice care also helps the patient’s family and caregivers.

  • Hospice care takes place in the patient’s home, in a home-like setting or long-term care facility.

  • Hospice care concentrates on managing a patient’s pain and other symptoms so that the patient may live as comfortable as possible with a focus on quality of life.
