Agency: HOSPICE OF THE FOOTHILLS


Resource Number: 4658011
Description
Provides patients who have life-limiting illnesses with options that offer comfort, compassion, and dignity. The focus of hospice is on caring and on getting the most out of life at the end of life. Hospice provides medical, emotional, and spiritual care. In most cases, care is provided in the patient's home, the place most people choose to be at the end of life. At the center of hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.
