Indiana - Hospice

Hospice

Hospice is one of the most common end-of-life care options available for seniors with a life limiting diagnosis. Hospice focuses more on patient comfort than on medical treatment. The staff of a hospice facility works around the clock to make sure individuals are as comfortable, happy, and pain free as possible. This palliative care can be given in an individual's home, a hospice facility, and in a nursing home setting.

yes I have experience with taking care with the end of life, I think with the support of family and friends and also a care team which was hospice the company I worked for it was just that we cared we (I)love giving back a smile a hug, a positive word or two, moral support, I know their time can be short, but you going that extra mile means so much to them and their family, TLC is what they need. You just may of added a few more days onto their life. Ty A.W.
