What is Hospice?

As a teenager, she dealt with hospice for her grandparents, and saw the value of hospice from a young age.

Most families are unfamiliar with hospice until the services are recommended for the care of a loved one. In the final days, palliative support is needed to address symptoms to ensure a person’s comfort in the final stages of life. These services are helpful for both the patient and the family attending to the patient.

At this point, treatment options are no longer pursued; the goal is to provide as much comfort as possible. It is common to treat pain, agitation, anxiety, and shortness of breath. Not all palliative care is hospice, but hospice is always palliative care.
