Palliative/Hospice/Comfort Care

Hospice care provides medical services, emotional support and various other resources for patients who are in the last stages of a terminal illness such as cancer or heart failure. Hospice care also provides the patient's loved ones with the support they need to deal with the difficulties, as well as the emotional impact, of caring for a terminally ill patient. The primary goal of hospice care is to provide patients with the ability to pass on without pain and with dignity.
