Many people who suffer a terminal illness eventually make the decision to shift their focus from seeking curative measures to instead making sure that the final part of their journey is as peaceful and comfortable as possible. Hospice provides a positive alternative that allows a person nearing the end of life to maximize the quality of that remaining time, right up until the last moment.
Hospice care can be delivered in whatever environment the patient desires, including right in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Hospice care is multi-faceted, addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient. It also provides support and guidance to those loved ones who are struggling with the difficult process of caring for someone who is nearing the end of life. Finally, hospice provides grief support prior to and following death.
