What is Hospice Care

When Life matters most, Hospice care helps patients and their families make the most of the days that remain.  Hospice care allows patients and families to focus on the things that matter the most – time with loved ones, sharing conversations with family and friends.

Hospice is about treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. It is a plan of care that brings comfort, compassion and closure for the patient and the family. Community Home Care & Hospice specializes in honoring life and offering comfort and dignity to both the patient and family who are facing a terminal illness.

How does Hospice Care Help?

Hospice cares for the person, not the disease. Hospice reaffirms life, focuses on dignity, and brings comfort and quality to the remaining months, weeks, and days. Hospice does not hurry death. Hospice does not prevent death.

Hospice is a team of health professionals caring for the patient, and relieving anxiety for the caregiver/family. Our hospice nurses are skilled in pain and symptom management. Our Hospice support team helps patients and families with personal care, social, emotional and grief issues.
