What Is Hospice Care?

Individuals with a life-limiting condition may receive hospice care to improve their quality of life, provide comfort, and support their families. Patient care is provided in the comfort of their own homes rather than in a hospital setting.

Hope Hospice offers patients comfort during difficult times by managing pain, controlling symptoms, and providing emotional support.
