Hospice is a philosophy of care; care that is provided to people with life-limiting illnesses, in their own homes, where they can be in familiar surroundings and close to their loved ones. The focus of care at this time shifts from curative care (curing the disease) to palliative care (to provide more comfort and quality). Important and difficult decisions need to be made about issues that most people know very little about. Families find that they are physically unable or do not know how to care for their loved one. Your physician or hospital may recommend hospice care to assist you at this time, or patients and families may call hospice on their own. 

When the time comes, let's walk the path together. 

What is Hospice?

 

Hospice care at home is a specialized healthcare service that provides comfort and support to individuals with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Hospice care focuses on managing symptoms, ensuring patient's dignity, and improving quality of life rather than curing the disease.

What is the difference between Hospice and Home Health Care?
 

Hospice provides comfort care to a patient with advanced illness when curative medical treatments are no longer effective or preferred. Home health care is curative, intended to help patients recover from injury or illness, or progress toward improved functionality.

Ask about our Hospice Volunteer Program & How you can help.

Hospice volunteers assist in providing patients and caregivers with affectionate care and support during the end-of-life process. The degree of interaction and comfort that volunteers administer allows for a greater level of care and contentment for individuals faced with advanced illnesses in the hospice program. Hospice volunteering is a meaningful way to bring fulfillment and joy to the volunteer and to the patients, caregivers, and staff being served.
