HOSPICE is a healthcare option for patients facing end-of-life illness. The patient’s and the family’s physical, emotional and spiritual health needs are the priority of a hospice team which comprises of doctors, nurses, social workers, and volunteers.Helping the patient die with dignity while managing pain and discomfort with caring is the motto.
When the hope of recovery is gone, hospice provides hope for the best quality of life as the patient lives the final days.
For patients being cared for at home, some hospice services offer respite care to allow friends and family some time away from care-giving. Families can plan a mini-vacation, go to special events, or simply get much-needed rest at home while you’re cared for in an inpatient setting.Learn More
