What is Hospice
Hospice philosophy
Hospice is not about dying, rather it is about living and maximizing the quality of life that a person has remaining. It recognizes death as a normal part of life and engages not only the patient but also loved ones as it provides a team of specialists to care for people as they write that final chapter of life’s journey.
