Five Ways That Hospice Helps

The vast majority of Americans say what they want at the end of life is to die in their own homes, as comfortable and pain free as possible. The hospice philosophy is about making sure that a patient’s death experience reflects their wishes. To learn the five ways that hospice helps to deliver this, click here.

Hospice makes more meaningful moments possible. Hospice is showing the world that hospice is about more than care for the dying. Hospice and palliative care can make more meaningful moments possible, even when a person is facing a serious or even terminal illness. To see the difference this person-centered care can make, watch these families’ stories.
