Hospice is holistic care for individuals making life’s final journey. When we realize that life is limited, in spite of the best medical interventions and treatments, we can choose to focus care on comfort and enhancement of the quality of life. The goal of comfort-focused care is to give the best living possible with whatever time remains. Even when cure is not, comfort is possible and Hospice care specializes in the provision of extraordinary, comfort-focused care.
Hospice is a family-centered concept of care that provides comfort, support and education for patients and their families. Hospice is NOT a place but is a philosophy of care that recognizes that the final life journey is as important as the beginning of our life’s journey.
