What is Hospice?

"It's heavy, but it's sort of the philosophy of Hospice that it's not about death. It's about life. When you are able to comfort the relatives of death, you're able to live life as long as you can."                                                                                                                                                                 - Landon Adams

 


 

Hospice is a philosophy.

Hospice is a philosophy of care that offers holistic services focusing on supporting you and your loved ones during an advanced illness.

The emphasis is on comfort and quality of life, rather than finding a cure. Hospice focuses on celebrating life and living in the present moment, it does not support hastening death.
