What is a Hospice?
When learning about hospice care, it is important that hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Hospice care provides support to patients and their families when their illness is no longer responding to treatment. Hospice care provides support for a patients physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs.
Benefits of a Hospice
Receiving hospice care does not mean that you are giving up. Instead, with hospice care you will still be receiving treatment for your illness. When you first seek hospice treatment, you will work with a team to develop a care plan.
You will also receive treatment from specialized physicians who are dedicated to your comfort and well being.
Receiving hospice treatment does not mean that you cannot recover. Many patients who receive hospice care show signs of improvement. Some even discontinue using hospice care. However, you are always able to resume hospice care if needed.
