November is National Hospice Month and hospices across the country are reaching out to raise awareness about the highest quality care for all people coping with a life- limiting illness.
Professionals working in the field of hospice and palliative care are highly trained to ensure that patients and families receive high quality medical care along with dignity and respect during life’s most difficult journey.
Hospice is not just a place. Hospice is a service that provides pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Hospice provides the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life.
