When you or a loved one has a life-limiting illness it can seem as though your world is turned upside down. You might feel powerless, scared and alone. Modern medicine has always been focused on the cure-but what if there is no cure? With hospice, there is still much that can be done.
Hospice is compassionate care focused on comfort. Care that meets the unique needs of each individual person while allowing them to make the most of every day. Understanding hospice prepares patients and families for the road that lies ahead. Remember, even in the face of a serious disease or advanced age, there is hope. Hospice care is provided by a core group of professionals who treat the whole person physically, emotionally, and spiritually. With hospice, you’re in control. You can consult with your physician and decide what type of care you want to receive. You can even leave hospice care and return later, if you choose.
Once patients and their families experience hospice, they often say they wish they’d known about it sooner. Our hospice team will make sure that you’re fully informed and well-prepared to care for your loved one to the best of your ability.
