Comprehensive Hospice and Palliative Care
About Comprehensive Hospice and Palliative Care
Comprehensive care includes both palliative care and hospice services: not always the same thing. Palliative Care is a specialized area of health care that focuses on relieving and preventing suffering related to an illness, or the treatments that are used to combat that illness. Palliative Care is not hospice. Palliative care is suitable for people experiencing any stage of a disease, including those undergoing treatment for curable diseases and those living with chronic diseases.
Hospice is not a place"¦it's a philosophy and a continuance of palliative care provided when nothing else can medically be done that is considered curative.
We provide comprehensive care wherever a person lives: at a nursing or assisted living facility, group home, or their own house.
