What is Hospice care?

There are many myths and misunderstandings about what hospice care is. Many people believe that hospice care is only for the last few days before a person dies however hospice care can last for up to a year, and sometimes more. It is designed to ease suffering when someone is in the advanced stages of a disease as it is more appropriate to focus on quality of life instead of a cure.

Hospice care provides assistance to both you and your loved one who is in the advanced stages of an illness. Hospice care focuses on the quality of life and not curing the disease.
