A Different Type of Care

CompassionCare Hospice

Original Post URL: https://cchlv.com/a-different-type-of-care/

Hospice is different. Centered on palliative care, which is the management of pain and symptoms so that every moment can be as comfortable and rewarding as possible. Traditional medicine treats the disease, where hospice attends with compassion and respect, to the whole patient. At some point a decision may have to be made-not about ceasing all care, but about weighing the benefits of a certain course of treatment against the burdens of that treatment. What matters most may not be more time, but the ability to more fully enjoy the time we have with those we love.

Remember, even in the face if a serious illness or advanced age, there’s hope.
