Hospice Origins

Hospices provide palliative care, as opposed to curative care. Hospice services include supportive medical, social, emotional, and spiritual services to the terminally ill, as well as support for the patient's family. The care is primarily provided in the patient's home to allow peace, comfort, and dignity. Hospice care relies on the combined knowledge and skill of an interdisciplinary team of professionals—physicians, nurses, medical social workers, therapists, counselors, and volunteers—who coordinate an individualized plan of care for each patient and family. Hospice reaffirms the right of every person and family to participate fully in the final stage of life.
