Hospice is a philosophy of care that focuses on comfort and quality of life for patients with a life expectancy of 6 months or less. You will be strategically matched with patients close to your home, and schedule your visits directly with patients or caregivers. Visits typically last 30 minutes-1 hour per patient.
