When someone chooses hospice, they receive care unlike any other. Care is tailored to the needs and choices of each individual patient. At the center of hospice care is the belief that as a person nears the end of life, they should do so in comfort and with dignity, that their choices for care be honored, and that their families and others important to them should receive the support that they need.
A hospice is there to ensure that the patient receives the best symptom management and care possible. The relief of pain and suffering, no matter what the cause, is the primary goal. Comfort in the last months of life allows the patient and family to do the things that are important to them and to spend their time together in meaningful ways.
Hospice is there to ease the journey for patients and families facing a terminal illness. Attending to human needs and providing physical care and specialized support services are essential parts of end-of-life care.
