Missouri - Hospice

Preparing a loved one's end-of-life care is distressing at best, but careful and early planning will help ensure that your loved one is comfortable and receives the type of care they want. Understanding the available options lets you plan so that your family's main focus can be spending time with an elderly loved one when you most want to.

Hospice

The most typical end-of-life care strategy is hospice care. Hospice aims to keep individuals comfortable and as pain free as possible rather than focusing on further medical treatment. Staff works around the clock wherever the individual is most comfortable to create a positive environment for the seniors in order to afford them a bit of relief during their final days. Families can remain with their loved one and be by their side the whole time, which offers a little more peace of mind.
