Nebraska - Hospice

When end-of-life care becomes necessary for a loved one, families find their stress reduced if they have a plan for this kind of care in place. Although it is never easy to discuss your loved one's care wishes, the sooner you craft a plan, the more time you can spend focused on your loved one.

Hospice

Hospice allows an individual to control their care plan for end-of-life treatment. Rather than focus on aggressive medical treatments, hospice is about palliative care and keeping an individual comfortable and as pain free as possible. Hospice staff work closely with both the individual and the attending doctor to craft a plan with comfort as the top priority. Families are comfortable with hospice because it helps create a peaceful environment for their loved one during a very stressful time. This care is offered in a home, a hospital, or even a nursing home environment - wherever the patient is most comfortable.
