The word "hospice" dates back to a centuries-old tradition of preparing gifts for those about to set off on a long journey. Today, Hospice Care refers to an entire spectrum of services that focus on the unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of individuals who choose to live as fully as possible at life's end.
The definition of hospice is a philosophy of health care that affirms life and provides care and support for people facing a life-limiting illness. To us, it goes even deeper. People who’ve experienced HealthEast Hospice Care tell us we treat them like family. We focus on the quality of life, not the duration.
