What is Hospice Care
Hospice offers a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing a life threatening illness.
Is that no one should have to face death or bereavement without appropriate care and support. Hospice emphasizes palliative rather than curative treatment; quality rather than quantity of life. The dying are comforted. Professional medical care is given, and sophisticated symptom relief provided. The patient and family are both included in the care plan and emotional, spiritual and practical support is given based on the patient’s wishes and family’s needs.
