Choosing the appropriate care for you or your loved one is never a decision that comes easy. Regardless of age, diagnosis, or financial standing, it's important to have a clear understanding about the care choices that are available and to recognize which is best for each person's specific needs.
Hospice treats the person, instead of the disease; focuses on the family, instead of just the individual; and emphasizes the quality of life, instead of its duration.
Hospice uses the combined knowledge and skills of an interdisciplinary team of professionals, including physicians, nurses, home care aides, social workers, spiritual caregivers, counselors, and volunteers.
Hospice care is a cost-effective alternative to services provided in hospitals, nursing homes, and other institutional settings.
Hospice is the preferred choice of health care delivery for the terminally ill and their families.
