What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a special kind of care that does not try to cure a terminal illness or prevent it from getting worse. Instead, hospice care gives people nearing the end of life the medical care, emotional support, and spiritual care they need to make their last months as comfortable and meaningful as possible. It also helps caregivers feel confident about what to do and what to expect through their loved one’s illness and beyond.

Having our expert doctors, nurses, home health aides, social workers, and spiritual care and bereavement counselors available means you don’t ever have to feel alone.
