    Understanding Hospice

    Hospice care is a special way of providing medical, emotional, social and spiritual care to people who are living with a terminal illness. It is a philosophy of care focused on comfort for the patient and support for the family. Hospice is available for anyone of any age with a life-limiting condition.

    Our skilled team of professionals provides care in the comfort of a patient's home, nursing home, assisted and/or independent living facilities. The team consists of the patient and family, family physician, hospice medical director, a nurse, home health aide, social worker, spiritual caregiver, grief support, and volunteers.

    Hospice allows patients to live the last phase of their life in familiar surroundings with people they love. Pain and symptom management are important in order for the patient to enjoy quality time with family, along with spiritual, emotional, and grief support.
