What is Hospice?

FEBRUARY 2024

Hospice care, often associated with end-of-life support and comprehensive care that hospice teams provide for patients and their families. Skilled professionals within hospice care collaborate to manage symptoms, alleviate pain, and offer emotional support to individuals facing heart-related illnesses. The interdisciplinary approach of hospice care ensures that patients receive holistic and compassionate attention tailored to their specific needs.

Hospice teams actively contribute to this endeavor by engaging in discussions about advance care planning, facilitating conversations about treatment goals, and offering support to families navigating the complexities of end-of-life decisions.

By fostering awareness and understanding, care teams work hand in hand to promote overall well-being and compassionate end-of-life care for those on hospice services.
