Hospice care is about living well
Hospice is not a place. It is the provision of services to those who are living with a terminal illness. The services are uniquely designed and based upon one’s requests and expressed needs.
Hospice is not about dying! Rather, hospice promotes dignity, autonomy and the best quality of life possible while living with a terminal illness.
This quote, from an article in the Holyoke Enterprise, defines what hospice care is all about. Many hold a view of hospice as a closed off place where people go to die, while in reality this could not be further from the truth, Whether in a designated care center or your own home, hospice care aims to provide whatever is best for the comfort and happiness of the patient and their loved ones.
