Mission Statement

The mission of Curo Health Services, and its hospice affiliates, is to honor life and offer compassion to individuals, and their families, when facing a life-limiting illness.

Description

http://newcentury.curohs.com/

Hospice is about treating the whole person - mind, body and spirit. It is a plan of care that brings comfort, compassion and closure for the patient and the family. Curo Health Services, and its eight affiliates, specialize in honoring life and offering comfort and dignity to both the patient and family who are facing a terminal illness.

Hospice cares for the person, not the disease. Hospice reaffirms life, focuses on dignity, brings comfort and quality to the remaining months, weeks, and days. Hospice does not hurry death. Hospice does not prevent death.

Hospice is a team of health professionals caring for the patient, and relieving anxiety for the caregiver/family. Our hospice nurses are skilled in pain and symptom management. Our Hospice support team helps patients and families with personal care, social, emotional and grief issues.

In addition to pain and symptom management Hospice offers guidance through the unknown, connections with needed resources, and friendship and comfort throughout the remaining time, and even after the patient’s death.

Hospice is not a place, but a philosophy of care based on a whole person concept of living and dying. It is a unique health care approach in which the patient and family, not the disease, are the focus.
