When your hospice doctor and regular doctor (if you have one) certify that you’re terminally ill (with a life expectancy of 6 months or less), the transition to hospice care is made. Hospice care is designed to provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when the illness cannot be cured. The focus with hospice is caring, not curing.
We are with you during the end of life experience. Our care is focused on holistic treatment (physical, social, emotional and spiritual.) Our goals is to ensure patients are comfortable and free from pain.
It can take place in the patient’s home, a nursing home or in a hospice care facility.
