What is Hospice Care?
Explaining the Basics of Hospice Care
Hospice is a special kind of care focused on the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of terminally ill patients and their families. Hospice care treats the person rather than the disease, focusing on the quality of life rather than the quantity of life.
At Cedar Valley Hospice , care decisions are made by the patient and family in coordination with a caring team of professionals. Hospice care at Cedar Valley Hospice offers:
- Care provided in nursing homes, assisted living centers or hospitals, at a patient’s home or in our Hospice Home.
- Help is available 24 hours a days, seven days a week.
- Hospice care to anyone who qualifies, regardless of age, illness or inability to pay.
- Grief support and other types of support to family members and loved ones during and after hospice care.
Having a terminally ill loved one is difficult. Cedar Valley Hospice can help support you and your loved one through the end-of-life process with the utmost care and respect. For more information, please contact Cedar Valley Hospice today.
