Treatment for terminally ill patients and families.
Hospice is a program that offers care for patients with an estimated life expectancy of six months or less who are no longer receiving cure-oriented treatments. The hospice team prioritizes comfort and quality of life by providing supportive care to the patient and caregivers.
Hospice is a philosophy of care that provides specialized health services for people nearing the end of life. If you have a terminal illness or have decided not to pursue further aggressive care and want to focus on comfort and quality of life, hospice care may be right for you. Hospice provides symptom management with a focus on dignity, as well as support services for you and your family. Both inpatient hospice care and home hospice care programs are available.
