Full Description

Hospice care is short-term, supportive care for a terminally ill individual expected to be near the end of life. 

This care focuses on pain management and emotional, physical, and spiritual support for the patient and family. Hospice care can happen in a hospital, nursing home, hospice facility, or home.  

Individuals with chronic or terminal illnesses often have symptoms or pain that are very hard on them and their families. Hospice care aims to ease the suffering of this person and their loved ones, giving families time to enjoy their last moments together.
