Hospice is About Living Life on Your Terms
Hospice care focuses on improving the quality of life for persons and their families faced with a life-limiting illness. The primary goals of hospice care are to provide comfort, relieve physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering, and promote the dignity of terminally ill persons. As such, it is palliative (comfort) care, not curative care.
Hospice doesn’t give anyone the power to shorten or prolong life, just the power to live it as you choose. Heart of Hospice is committed to the idea that Hospice isn’t about dying, it’s about living and making each journey the best it can be.
