What is Hospice?

Hospice is a patient and family centered approach to end of life care. Hospice respects the needs of the patient and their family as they face a serious illness where curative treatments are no longer successful. Services can be provided in the comfort of one's home, assisted living facility, inpatient facility, skilled nursing facility or wherever the patient resides. When a cure is no longer possible, the focus of care shifts from managing the disease process to improving the quality of life. Hospice care treats the person, not the disease. Under the direction of a physician, and in collaboration with a team of healthcare professionals, a plan of care is developed to meet your specific needs and goals of care.
