Hospice is about quality of life. When asked about their experience, the one thing we hear over and over from families is that they only wish they had chosen hospice sooner. CarePartners Hospice is here to help families make the most of their time together.
Hospice care helps patients and families manage care of someone with a terminal illness. It’s neither giving up nor hastening death. The goal of hospice support is to increase patient comfort as much as possible.
Palliative care, different from hospice, is available to help manage chronic, often declining, health problems for patients who are perhaps not ready for hospice.
