Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death; it affirms life and understands that dying is a natural part of the cycle of life.
Hospice care is provided at home, including nursing homes and assisted living residences - wherever home is.
Even after the death of the patient, hospice continues to care for the family by providing grief counseling.
Hospice focuses on pain and symptom control that enable the patient to live as fully as comfortable as possible.
The hospice interdisciplinary team cares for the medical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of the patient and family.
