We believe that the pain that comes with a life-limiting illness, and with dying, isn’t just physical. We know that it also has to do with losing one’s independence, the stress that it puts on relationships. We know that sometimes living with an illness means that your life gets turned upside down: financially, socially, and spiritually. We want to help you through these challenging changes so that you can have the best life possible.
People often think that hospice palliative care is only an option when there’s nothing more that can be done. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hospice palliative care is about living well…making sure that your pain and your symptoms are managed, while encouraging you to focus on the things that really matter, whatever that may be for you. It’s about making sure that caregivers are supported, so that they can live well too. It’s about helping people with their grief, so that they can experience life after loss.
Hospice Palliative Care is proudly delivered by physicians, volunteers, nurses, spiritual counselors, friends, and family. It can be provided at home, in hospitals, in nursing homes, or in freestanding hospice facilities.
