What Is Hospice Care?
Hospice is all about living a quality of life till we pass on due to a life threating illness!! Having a quality end of life experience and receiving the gift of hospice is what hospice was intended to do. Hospice care involves in-home treatment for the chronically or terminally ill. This service primarily focuses on enhancing an individual’s quality of life, managing symptoms and providing the opportunity for an individual to spend his or her last days with dignity.
Hospice care typically offers the following:
- Pain management and comfort control
- Symptom control
- In-home care
- Inpatient care, when needed for severe pain and symptom
- Spiritual services
- Care coordination
- Bereavement services
Hospice care also typically involves continual communication with family members, including updates on the loved one’s condition, what family members can expect, and more. In many instances, hospice care may also involve respite care.
