Comforting, Supportive Hospice Care

Hospice care is a type of health care that focuses on the well-being of terminally ill patients. This type of care prioritizes comfort and quality of life by reducing pain and suffering.

When the quantity of life is limited, hospice care emphasizes the quality of life remaining by focusing on the emotional, social, spiritual, and physical comfort of the patient and family. This is accomplished through a team of professionals and trained volunteers.
