Hospice is designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families when a terminal illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. Professional medical care is still provided with sophisticated pain/ symptom relief. The patient and family are both included in the care plan and emotional, spiritual and practical support is given based on the patient’s wishes and family’s needs.

Hospice care is provided to patients who have a limited life expectancy. Although most hospice patients are cancer patients, hospices accept anyone regardless of age or type of illness.
