Hospice is about quality of life-not quantity. Hospice does not hasten or postpone death. Hospice allows a terminal illness to run its natural course while giving patients hope. Hope for comfort, dignity, and hope for living each day of their life.
If you or a loved-one are struggling with an illness, hospice can help. It’s a different kind of care provided by a team of dedicated health professionals that come to your home wherever you need their help. Hospice is centered on palliative care, which means managing your pain and symptoms so that every moment can be as comfortable and rewarding as possible. While traditional medicine treats a disease, hospice attends, with compassion and respect, to the patient as a whole-mind, body and spirit.
Remember, even in the face of a serious disease or advanced medical condition, there is hope. It is about deciding what’s right for you and what matters most. Finding this answer for ourselves is one of the hardest things we’ll do. CompassionCare can help you or a loved one understand the nature of your illness, the likely outcome of treatment, what will happen next, and most importantly how to have the best possible quality of life. Hospice can be a better way of dealing with a progressive condition.
Anyone can make a referral to hospice, the sooner a referral is made, the better. Many say they wish they had known about services before actually being admitted. Hospice care is covered 100% by Medicare and Medicaid, commercial insurance is also accepted. If you’re faced with end-of-life decisions, you don’t have to go at it alone. Our dedicated team at CompassionCare will make sure that you’re fully informed and well taken care of. For more information call us today.
