How We Help
Hospice is a designed program that supports the recognition of death as the final stage of life. Hospice provides comfort care that focuses on the emotional, physical, and spiritual services to those residents and families with terminal illnesses. They emphasize palliative rather than curative treatment; quality rather than quantity of life. Professional medical care is given by hospice, and sophisticated symptom relief provided. The resident and family are both included in the care plan and emotional, spiritual and practical support is given based on the resident’s wishes and family’s needs. The nature of dying is so unique that the goal of the hospice team is to be sensitive and responsive to the special requirements of each individual and family.
