Hospice services offer physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical comfort and support to patients and families who are facing death -- at home, in the hospital, or other settings. The goal of hospice is to keep pain and suffering at a minimum, rather than to cure an underlying condition or illness. To qualify for care, most hospice services follow the general guideline that a patient must be diagnosed with a medical condition likely to cause death within six months or less. However, hospice care need not be continuous; patients are free to begin and end it as their condition improves or deteriorates.
The specific type of care and service hospice provides differs depending on individual needs and preferences, but it may include the following:
Hospice care is for people who can no longer benefit from regular medical treatment and want to live their remaining time in a way they perceive will afford as much comfort, dignity, and privacy and as little pain as possible. For caregivers, hospice can also provide essential respite from the stress and constancy of daily duties, as well as grief counseling if needed.
