Hospice Care

Hospice is a philosophy of care that accepts death as a natural part of life, seeking neither to hasten nor prolong the dying process.  Caring that strives to help patients truly “live until they die” – without the fear of dying in pain, dying alone or losing control.

Hospice is a comprehensive, medically directed, team-oriented program of care that seeks to treat and comfort terminally ill patients and their families at home or in a home-like setting, establishing pain management and symptom control as clinical goals, and understanding that psychological and spiritual pain are as significant as physical pain.
