Hospice care is a philosophy of caring that assists those nearing the end of life and in need of refuge. It is a system of caring designed to restore dignity and provide a sense of personal fulfillment to the dying.The focus is on the patient and the family rather than the disease, the goal is to improve the quality of life that remains. The modern hospice is not a place, a building, or an institution (a frequent misconception). Instead, it's a concept ~ a collection of ideas and attitudes ~ about an array of services based on a holistic philosophy of living and dying.Hospice searches for meaningful treatment of terminally ill patients and their families by uniting contemporary science with sensitive caring.In short, the goal of all hospice care is the relief of symptoms in order to promote comfort and improve a patient's quality of life.Palliative care is the very foundation of Seasons Hospice and other hospice facilities. By providing palliative care, it is our goal to relieve or soothe the symptoms of our patients' diseases or disorders without attempting a cure.Whether you or a loved one is dealing with physical pain or sorrow, our goal is to make that pain easier to bear.Seasons Hospice is home to medically qualified specialists who are trained in the care of patients with an incurable disease. These specialists focus on symptom control and enhancement of the quality of life. Hospice is not a place to stay, like a hospital or nursing home. Hospice is a way of providing care for a person who is terminally ill. Hospice is not a "death bed" service for people in the last 48 hours of life. Hospice is a program that focuses on quality of life. It is most helpful during the final six months of life expectancy. Hospice is not a place to send dying people so they won't have to know what is happening to them. Hospice believes in the right of people to know accurately and honestly what is happening to them so they can choose how they want to spend their remaining days in the most purposeful and meaningful ways. Hospice is not just for cancer patients. Hospice is for people who have any terminal illness.
