What Is Hospice?

Hospice is not a place. Hospice is a philosophy that focuses on providing
comfort to those with illnesses who can no longer benefit from curative
treatments.

The goal of this palliative care is not to cure in these final days, but to make
the most of the time that remains.

When considering hospice care, it is important to remember that
palliative
care neither hastens nor postpones death, but enhances the quality of the
remainder of a person’s life.
