What is hospice care?
Hospice care is a healthcare approach designed to alleviate suffering and enhance comfort as an individual approaches the end of life. Our dedicated team works tirelessly, providing around-the-clock management of pain and other symptoms, with a profound focus on the spiritual and emotional well-being of the patient.
At the core of hospice care are nursing services that prioritize symptom management, practical assistance, and emotional support. We understand that caring for a loved one at home can be demanding, and our mission is to offer timely services that enable your family to make the most of your precious time together.
Hospice care encompasses a range of services, including home medical equipment and personal supplies, 24/7 access to care, management of complex pain and symptoms, hospice aides for personal care and homemaking, medical social services, spiritual care, and support, as well as various therapies and respite care for family caregivers. Ongoing grief counseling is also provided for the patient, family, and friends.
