What is Hospice?

Hospice is an approach to care that:

  • Emphasizes comfort, quality of life and dignity to those approaching death,
  • Provides friendship and assistance from volunteers who understand the needs of patients and their families,
  • Affirms every person’s right to die with dignity, and to be informed and involved in decisions affecting their care,
  • Enables terminally ill people to be cared for and die at home if desired, and
  • Focuses on quality of living when cure is no longer an option.
