The mission of Interim HealthCare Hospice is to provide comprehensive coordinated care to individuals with life-limiting illnesses, to their families and support them in the process of death and bereavement.
· Hospice is a special concept of care designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. · Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death. Hospice staff and volunteers offer a specialized knowledge of medical care, including pain management. · The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of a patient's last days by offering comfort and dignity. · Hospice care is provided by a team-oriented group of specially trained professionals, volunteers and family members. · Hospice addresses all symptoms of a disease, with a special emphasis on controlling a patient's pain and discomfort. · Hospice deals with the emotional, social and spiritual impact of the disease on the patient and the patient's family and friends. · Hospice offers a variety of bereavement and counseling services to families before and after a patient's death.
