HospiceCare acknowledges that death is a natural part of life. HospiceCare also encourages every individual to live each day to its fullest.

Description

What is hospice?

Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, hospice and palliative care involve a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient's needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patient's loved ones as well.

The focus of hospice relies on the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our loved ones will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. The focus is on caring, not curing and in most cases, care is provided to you in your own home. Hospice can be provided in freestanding hospice facilities, hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Hospice is available to persons of any age, religion or race.
