Hospice is a program of health care and services designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatment. Hospice care is sensitive to the unique needs of each patient and family. It considers the entire family, not just the patient, to be the unit of care. Under hospice care, patients and their families will have the opportunity to prepare for the end-of-life experience with dignity. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Care is delivered by a team of professionals who address the needs of patients and their families on medical, physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Services are provided with privacy and dignity in the patient’s home, board and care, nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
