Hospice Makes the Most of Every Day

The hospice concept of care is built on an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates the coordinated services of health care professionals and trained volunteers to meet the unique needs of patients facing a life-limiting illness and their families. Hospice care is a form of palliative care, specifically for individuals with a life-expectancy of six months or less (as determined by their physician), whose goals for care focus on palliation (comfort measures) rather than cure of the underlying disease.

Hospice is not about death, but rather about the quality of life as it nears its end. It is not a place to send people to die and is not about last minute hospital care.

Hospice services provide medical, emotional, spiritual and social support to patients and families experiencing end of life issues. Intermittent care is provided by hospice professionals and it is not a substitute for the family or family's care. Hospice treats the person, not the disease and focuses on the family, not just the individual. To this end, care is provided in the patient's home setting where comfort and security are enhanced by familiar surroundings.
