The sooner a patient receives the special care hospice offers, the more time you and your family can focus on what really matters. When a cure is no longer expected, hospice care will enable you to remain independent for as long as possible, live comfortably, and ensure that your wishes are followed.
As your illness progresses, your treatment goals may change. Hospice care is individualized and flexible. As your wishes or needs change, your care plan can change with you.
Hospice care is a specialty that provides support for the whole person and their family. Unlike other medical care, hospice care offers mind, body and spirit care, by offering social worker support, spiritual support, and even bereavement support.
After experiencing hospice care, 98% of families are glad that they chose hospice care for their loved one. In fact, most families wish they had called hospice sooner.
