Hospice is not a place – it’s a philosophy of care recognizing death as the final stage of life. Hospice Promise educates a philosophy that hospice extends across the entire life span. While end of life care may be difficult to discuss, it is best for family members to share their wishes before it becomes a concern. Hospice services are available to patients with any terminal illness or of any age, religion, or race. Hospice is a service that is provided where you call home.
The sole resolution of hospice is to offer caring and supportive services to all people in the final phase of their life so that they can live as fully and comfortably as possible where one calls home. We do this through care designed to provide patients and their loved ones with educational, spiritual, psychosocial, medical, and nursing support that emphasizes comfort and quality of life.
We at Hospice Promise believe death is a natural and necessary closure to the life we have experienced. All individual deserve quality care at the end of life – it’s a fundamental part of living. During this time, the dying person and loved ones should have the opportunity to learn, touch, console, enjoy, plan and laugh where one calls home.
