Hospice is a compassionate approach to end-of-life care. The goal of Hospice is to help people with serious illness live life fully, maintain their dignity and keep personal control over their lives. Hospice is available to anyone with an illness whose life expectancy is measured in months, rather than years.
When more time cannot be given, we can help to make the most of the time one has left.
