Hometown Home Health
Hospice is a philosophy, a way of caring for individuals living with serious illnesses who no longer benefit from curative treatments. When the time comes that a cure is no longer probable, hospice embraces the patient and family as they focus on comfort and the end of life. When facing serious illness, many people learn that there is much to hope for and wish for in their lives. Hospice helps people achieve their goals and supports the family as they care for their loved one in the last months of their life.
