Hospice care provides peace and dignity through quality patient care for patients when a doctor has given a diagnosis of six months or less to live.
You can receive hospice care wherever you call home: in your own home or caregiver’s home, in a nursing home or assisted living facility, or in our Centers for Hospice Care.
Non-Hospice Palliative Care
Palliative care is not hospice care, and works to alleviate pain and symptoms that come from a chronic illness. You can receive treatments at any stage of a serious chronic illness.
Benefits of palliative care include pain and symptom control, communication and coordination among all your physicians, emotional support, and family/caregiver support.
