Hospice Care

Next » « Previous


Hospice care is a way of caring for people with a life-limiting progressive illness or for people who are dying. It involves shifting the focus from trying to cure a disease to care that provides comfort and the best quality of living for the time you have left.

Hospice care is a multi-disciplinary approach that provides medical, emotional and spiritual care for the patient and for the family.

Although hospice care does not provide treatment to cure the disease, it does treat physical problems as they occur. (This is referred to as "not-curative medicine").

If money is a problem, free hospice care is available.
