Minnesota - Hospice

Talking about end-of-life care is emotional and distressing, but it really helps a family cope if they make plans as early as possible. Talk about your loved one's wishes and explore the options available, so when the time comes, your family can focus on each other and not worry about finding the right care.


Hospice is one of the most common end-of-life care options that people choose. Hospice care focuses on ensuring a patient's comfort rather than medical treatment. This type of palliative care can be administered wherever the individual is most comfortable, whether that is their own home, a hospice facility, or a nursing home. A hospice environment is positive and puts the person receiving hospice in control of the care plan
