What is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a unique concept of care provided by a team of specially trained professionals whose goal is to improve the quality and dignity of a patient’s last days. This is accomplished through careful attention to the individual’s unique needs including pain management, medical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.

Who Needs Hospice Care?

With services ranging from high-tech healthcare to personal care, hospice care is a healthcare option allowing persons with terminal health problems to remain in their homes as opposed to hospitals or nursing homes. Advanced technologies now enable healthcare professionals to use sophisticated, high-tech medical equipment and procedures in the home to promote healing and provide comfort.

Hospice care is an ideal solution for the following individuals:

  • Persons with a terminal disease, such as cancer or AIDS, who need personal care, pain management, and emotional support.

  • Families who need respite from caregiving and emotional support in dealing with a loved one who is terminally ill.

  • Caregivers and family surviving the loss of a loved one, who are offered bereavement care.

Hospice care is an ideal solution because it:

  • Is personalized one-to-one, tailored to the needs of each individual. 

  • Is cost effective when compared to hospital or nursing home care.

  • Supplements the family's resources and efforts in caring for loved ones at home, keeping families together.

  • Allows the terminally ill to remain in their favorite place: their own homes.
