What is Hospice?

Hospice is specialized type of care for those facing a life-limiting illness, their families, and their caregivers.

Hospice care addresses the patient's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.
Hospice care also helps the patient's family caregivers.
Hospice care takes place in the patient's home or in a home-like setting.
Hospice care concentrates on managing a patient's pain and other symptoms so that the patient may live as comfortably as possible and make the most of the time that remains.
Hospice care believes the quality of life to be as important as the length of life.
