People may have a perceived impression of Hospice and then are surprised by what is the truth or the actual philosophy of Hospice. For National Hospice Month let's discuss the differences.
Death is to be a natural part of the cycle of life.
Neither hastens nor postpones death.
Supports patients who desire to die with dignity and have as much control as possible.
Aggressively manage pain and symptoms.
Holistic approach that recognizes pain and suffering may be physical, emotional, spiritual or social.
Supports persons in hopes that they may live as fully and as comfortably as possible.
