Northshore Hospice is a comprehensive program of home-based care for patient, family and friends during the final stages of a terminal illness. The purpose of hospice is to help patients remain in their home setting, to provide relief from pain and discomfort, to help patients remain as active as possible, and to provide comfort and support so patients can maintain their quality of life with independence and dignity. Hospice team members focus on the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the patients and their families. Patient Support Volunteers must go through a 15 hour training course.
