The National Hospice Palliative Care Organization defines Hospice as a team oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient's needs and wishes.
Support will be extended to the patient's loved ones as well. At the center of Hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain free and with dignity and that our families' loved ones will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.
Hospice is Palliative/Comfort care and is an option after all other medical treatments have been explored. The goal is to prevent and relieve suffering, to improve quality of life for individuals experiencing a serious, complex illness at end of life. Your Primary Care Physician and a Hospice Physician agree that the Hospice criteria for a terminal illness is present (usually with a prognosis of 6 months or less).
Our Hospice team will perform a specialized, individualized assessment taking into consideration any specific care needs and tailor a Plan of Care centering on personal choices and needs.
