Why Hospice?

  • Hospice treats you, not the disease. The focus is on care, not cure. A team of hospice professionals and volunteers addresses your and your family’s medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs.
  • Hospice services are extended to your family, with your authorization. You and your family are included in the decision-making process.
  • Hospice will help you and your family makes choices about end-of-life issues and enables you to have greater control over these choices. Bereavement counseling will be provided to your family for up thirteen months.
  • Hospice offers palliative care, rather than curative treatment. Hospice will provide care and comfort when cure is no longer an option. Through ever-advancing technology, pain and symptoms control will enable you to live as fully and comfortably as possible.
  • Hospice promotes quality of life.
