National Hospice & Palliative Care Month 2021

Hospice & Palliative Care Helps You Focus on Living

When you or someone you love has a serious illness, time is precious. At Cedar Valley Hospice, our hospice and palliative care programs can provide comfort and support to make the most of that precious time.

Hospice isn’t about dying, but is about living as fully as possible despite a life-limiting illness. Many people only consider hospice care in the final days of life, but hospice is ideally suited to care for patients and caregivers for the final 6 months of life or as long as they continue to qualify for hospice care.

Palliative care is available to people earlier in the course of a serious illness and can be provided along with currative treatments they may still be receiving from their doctor.

November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to draw attention and raise awareness of these important types of care. Hospice and palliative care can make a profound difference by helping maximize your quality of life and providing support to your family.

Cedar Valley Hospice experts come to you (in your home or a residential facility) to provide:

  • Pain and symptom management
  • Education about your illness
  • Support for caregivers and family
  • Plus... access to many more services (See infographic below)
