About Hospice Care

When we experience a focus shift from active treatment to provision of comfort and improved quality of life for terminally ill patients and their loved ones, we often term this type of treatment as hospice care. Where hospice is commonly perceived as a place; it is rather a spectrum of services that provides patients and their families a sense of control and hope for the time leading up to the inevitable.
