What is hospice care?
Hospice care is a program of active, compassionate, palliative care provided to residents for whom a cure is no longer medically possible. Energies increasingly focus on the relief of suffering, and achievement of comfort and the best possible quality of life. Hospice care affirms life and regards dying as a normal process, neither hastening nor postponing death. Hospice care helps people live a better quality of life including the final days. Achieving this requires attention not only to the control of pain and other symptoms but also to psychological and spiritual needs.
