Hospice is a philosophy of care and support for terminally ill people and their loved ones that is dedicated to reaffirming that life in its final phase can be lived to its fullest. Hospice care sometimes takes place in special facilities, hospitals or nursing homes. In our area hospice care is primarily provided to people in their home.
