MYTH: Hospice is a Place

A lot of people, when they think of “hospice” think of a place. This is a misconception about hospice care. If you are receiving hospice care, you do not necessarily have to be a resident of an in-patient facility. Most hospice programs are actually home-based, but there are some programs that provide services in nursing homes, in hospitals, or in separate facilities. Whatever your needs are, there is a program that will enable you to get the hospice care you want.

 

Hospice care simply means care designed to give supportive care to people in the final phase of a terminal illness and focuses on comfort and quality of life, rather than a cure. The goal is to enable patients to be as comfortable of and free of possible, so that they can enjoy the remainder of their lives to the fullest. Here at Pro Care Hospice–your Las Vegas hospice–we strive to provide the most comforting end-of-life experience possible by valuing each patient as an individual.
