How would you define Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a holistic approach of care for a terminally ill patient. It is a selfless act by a family towards their loved one who has been diagnoses with a terminal illness or who has lived to a ripe age and is ready to transition into hospice care due to their advanced age. We provide a high quality of medical and spiritual care in a comfortable environment for our patient whether that be there home or a facility.

Transitioning info end-of-life care with a hospice company ensures the patient passes away in comfort and in their desired space. A lot of times family members believe the best place to receive end-of-life care is in a hospital surrounded by doctors and nurses. However, many patients that come to terms with their diagnosis prefer to spend their last few days/weeks/months in the comfort of their home surrounded by family.
This time is very sacred for the patient, their family, and their friends. It is time to bond with your loved one before they pass away. Hospice care gives the patient the right to pass away with dignity and without pain in the comfort of their home. If the patient chooses to receive care in a Board & Care or a facility, we will be more than happy to accommodate our patient wherever they prefer. We also provide emotional and spiritual support for our patient’s family members. We are there for the patient and their loved ones through every step of the way.
