What Is Hospice Care?
Hospice addresses the patient’s medical, emotional, social, and spiritual
needs. We also provide support for the families of patients. Bereavement
support is provided for up to 13 months after the death of an individual’s
loved one. These support services are open to anyone in the community
who is grieving a loss.
At the core of hospice care is the belief that quality of life is just
as important as length of life. Choosing hospice care is not giving up.
It is changing the focus of care from curing the disease to controlling
