When you or a loved one has a life-limiting illness, it can seem like your world has shattered. You might feel powerless, scared, or alone. Where do you turn? Hospice can help.
Modern medicine has always focused on the cure. But what if there is not cure? In the past we used to be told, “Nothing more can be done.” With hospice, there is much more that can be done.
Hospice is compassionate care focused on comfort. It is care that meets the unique needs of each person. Hospice celebrates life. It allows patients and families to make the most of every day.
Understanding hospice prepares patients and families for what is ahead. We hope this booklet will help you understand more about hospice. Deciding on hospice care may be one of the hardest choices you have to make. But it’s an important choice to explore.
