The Hospice Philosophy

Hospice is not a place, it is a concept about the quality of life as it nears its end for the patients and their families and friends. Hospice believes death to be a natural part of the cycle of life. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice supports those who desire to face end-of-life with dignity and as much control as possible. Hospice aggressively manages pain and symptoms.

Hospice is holistic and recognizes that pain and suffering may be physical, emotional, spiritual, or social. Hospice supports those who wish to live as fully and as comfortable as possible. Hospice provides palliative care to terminally ill patients, as well as supportive services to patients, their families, and significant others, 24 hours a day in both home and inpatient settings.
