HOSPICE CARE

Hospice care is a specialized care designed to provide support to you and your loved ones during an advanced illness. Hospice care focuses on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The goal of hospice care is to enable you to have an alert, pain-free life to live each day as fully as possible.

  • Addresses the patient’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.

  • Helps the patient’s family caregivers.

  • Takes place in the patient’s home or in a home-like setting.

  • Concentrates on managing a patient’s pain and other symptoms so that the patient may live as comfortable as possible and make the most of the time that remains.

  • Hospice care believes the quality of life to be as important as length of life
