What is Hospice?
Hospice is a special way of caring for individuals in their final stages of terminal illness. This care allows the individual to live life as fully and comfortably as possible. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones expiration, but improves the quality of the patient’s life. Our programs are customized individually to provide patients and families with the necessary education, support and skill needed to prepare for the end of life. Hospice specializes in palliative care versus curative care. Palliative care provides pain control to relieve symtoms and additional professional support for patients and their families during the final stage of the patient’s illness. Thus, the primary focus in the patient and family rather than the disease.

Our Commitment
Our team meets the challenges of enhancing the quality of life by means of providing physical, spiritual and emotional needs for the patients and families.
