What is Hospice?

A philosophy of care intended to provide comfort and support to patients and their families living with a life-limiting illness. In addition to controlling pain while offering comfort and dignity, hospice incorporates a holistic approach. It deals with the emotional, social and spiritual impacts of the terminal disease on the patient, family, and friends.
