Hospice care consists of treatment for the chronically or terminally ill, either in a designated hospice facility or the patient's own home. This service focuses on compassionate comfort care for individuals who are at their last phase of life. Hospice care helps manage their symptoms and provide communication with family members so that they would know what to expect during their loved one's final days.
Hospice is a special healthcare option for patients and families who are faced with a terminal illness. A multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, bereavement counselors, and volunteers works together to address the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient and family.
Patients are eligible for hospice care when they have been diagnosed with a terminal illness with a prognosis of 6 months or less. At that time, comfort care and symptom management become the primary focus, and curative treatment is no longer the patient’s choice or option.
