Alaska - Hospice

End-of-life care planning is a difficult and often emotional process for families and individuals. Being properly informed eases the stress of this difficult time.

Hospice Care

When caring for an aging loved one becomes a round-the-clock necessity, and end-of-life care is needed, Hospice care is a great option for families. Live-in nurses and 24-hour medical staff help individuals remain comfortable in a soothing environment, allowing the final days of life to be about quality rather than quantity. Hospice prioritizes the patient and the family, and enables patients to make their own choices with the support and assistance of caregivers. This type of care typically takes place in a person's home, a nursing home, or assisted living community.
