Hospice affirms life.
Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.
Hospice provides physical, emotional, and spiritual care to terminally ill persons and their families.
Hospice includes the patient, family and caregivers as well as trained clinical professionals on the hospice team.
Hospice provides services in the home, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, or anywhere the patient calls home.
Hospice is available to patients and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Hospice care helps the patient and family share the best days possible as they deal with a life-limiting illness.
The focus of hospice is on comfort and symptom relief, when cure is no longer an option.
Hospice works with the patient and family in making choices about end-of-life issues, giving them greater control over these choices and how they live their days.
Hospice is not about dying.
Hospice is about living everyday with the best quality possible.
