What Is Hospice Care?
In hospice, the goal is not to cure an illness — rather, the idea is to keep a patient as comfortable and free of pain as possible, easing their end-of-life transition. However, hospice care doesn’t simply take the needs of the patient into account. Hospice services also usually provide care, counseling, and instruction services to the family members of the patient. This care can be given at home, but patients may also receive this care in a hospital, nursing home, or another hospice facility.
What Care Is Included?
Most hospice services included medical and nursing care, help with daily needs, and counseling. Any medications the patient needs will also be administered. From bereavement assistance for the family to cooking and cleaning for the patient, hospice services were designed to meet the needs of everyone involved.
