A type of treatment that focuses on symptom management for patients who are battling a terminal illness. At Anvoi Hospice, care is delivered by a team of professionals who address the patients' needs on medical, physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The team consists of the patient's attending physician, hospice medical director, registered nurse, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain, and trained volunteers.
The goal of hospice care is to provide patients with comfort and dignity during their end-of-life journey. Hospice care is not about curing the disease, but rather about alleviating the patients' symptoms and enhancing their quality of life. The interdisciplinary team works closely with the patients and their family to ensure that the patients' wishes and preferences are respected and that they receive care that is tailored to their unique needs. Hospice care also provides support to the patients' loved ones, helping them to cope with the emotional and practical challenges of caring for a terminally ill family member. Ultimately, hospice care is about providing compassionate care and support to patients and families during a difficult and challenging time.
