Hospice care

Hospice care is end of life care that is given by health care professionals and volunteers.

The primary goal of hospice care is to provide humane and compassionate care in the last phases of a terminal illness.The caregivers give medical,psychological and emotional support to help people who are dying have peace,comfort and dignity.

Many people choose to recieve hospice care in their home,but if home care is not an option,care can also be given in the hospital,nursing home and at a hospice center.

It may take time to find a local hospice care program that meets your needs,but consider it time well spent as quality of care,personnel training and avaliability of needed services all need to be taken into consideration.

If you need help finding a quality hospice care program you can speak to your physician,contact your local health department or look in the yellow pages.
