What is liver disease?

Liver disease includes various conditions that affect the liver's function, ranging from mild to severe and causing symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, jaundice, and abdominal swelling.

Liver disease symptoms vary depending on the condition's severity and cause. Common symptoms include abdominal pain, fatigue, jaundice, itching, and weight loss. Severe cases can result in liver failure, leading to confusion, coma, and death.

Treatment for liver disease depends on the cause and severity. Mild cases may require lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, as well as medications to manage symptoms and slow disease progression. Severe cases may necessitate a liver transplant.

We really weren't sure what to expect with hospice care, but Hope's guidance and compassion was beyond anything we could have imagined. My mom's nurses brought such care and attention, and I know she looked forward to their visits each week. 



I can't thank you enough for the compassionate care that you gave to my husband during his hospice care. Everyone involved with Hope Hospice was amazing!



This Hospice does not have employees, they have angels. No matter how low my spirits were, they ministered to me just like I was the patient. They will never know how much they helped us. They became much more than caregivers. They were like family. May the lord richly bless them.

Hope Hospice and their wonderful staff provided the utmost clinical care with the greatest effort for my mother's dignity. My mother loved her nurses and looked forward to their visits until the very end. The nurses honored her by attending both her funeral and graveside services. They were great support and comfort to me.

The Hospice nursing staff are angels! They listened to my concerns and were caring/loving to my uncle. THey made his dying experience better than we could have hoped for.

We had the most amazing Hospice experience. The NP's caregivers and techs that delivered and picked up the equipment: Mom was treated, always, with sincere love and respect. God truly blessed our family.

We knew we were never alone in his battle with illness. The team met all of our needs for medical care, emotional care, and other, such as bathing needs, prescriptions, and follow-up calls. I thank everyone we met.
