Simply put, hospice is about choosing life. It’s about believing that every moment, of every hour, of every day matters. And deciding to savor every one.
Hospice teams work with existing physicians and nursing staff to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of both the patient and their family and loved ones. But our goal is unique compared to traditional restorative care. We focus on caring, rather than curing, and we do whatever it takes to help patients and loved ones face the journey ahead with clarity and dignity.
Hospice services range from pain management to a host of alternative therapies, and these programs can be implemented wherever the patient is most comfortable: a private residence, nursing home, apartment, etc. While hospice is not a 24/7 service, Good Samaritan and most hospice programs are on-call around the clock should a need arise.
