Why Choose A Hospice Care Program

When you are out of options it is time to consider choosing palliative treatment vs. continuing a no longer effective curative treatment plan, which may in fact compromise quality of life and time spent with family. The focus can then transition to making the patient feel as comfortable as possible. This is when hospice services offer patients, families and caregivers choices for symptom management. Patients and families can now establish a new goal which is to achieve the best possible quality of life. Hospice provides care in the patient’s own home, a nursing home, assisted living and Alzheimer’s facilities.
