What is hospice care?
Hospice care focuses on medical and personal comfort for people living with an illness that is no longer responding to curative treatments. Patients choose hospice when it becomes clear that a cure is no longer likely, and they want comfort care so they can live as fully as possible until the end of life. Hospice care helps patients with physical symptoms like pain or nausea. Hospice staff members also comfort patients, families and friends by helping them feel emotionally and spiritually at peace. They work together with patients and families to bring dignity and well-being to anyone affected by illness and loss.
