You’re Not Alone In This
Whether you’re facing a life-limiting illness or you’re caring for someone who is, hospice care can help you and your family during this difficult time. You’re not alone and you’re not giving up. You’re taking the next step to improve your quality of life and spend meaningful time with friends and family.
Hospice is a special kind of healthcare patients receive after they are diagnosed with an illness that physicians believe will be terminal, primarily within six months. When a patient enters into hospice care, they are usually not receiving treatment intended to cure their diagnosis, but instead are choosing to focus on maximizing their quality of life with treatments to promote comfort and help manage pain.
That’s where your hospice care team comes in, delivering expert care, helpful emotional support, and social and spiritual connections. To do that, we have a team of caregivers to make sure you have the support and care you need.
