New Hampshire - Hospice Care

The aging process can be quite taxing, but especially when end-of-life care arrangements must be made. Hospice care, the most common end-of-life care strategy, places a focus on keeping their residents comfortable and pain free rather than on medical treatment. Usually called in when an individual has a life-limiting diagnosis, hospice care can be in an individual's home, an assisted living community, or a nursing home. Families benefit from the grief counseling and the advice from staff experienced with end-of-life issues. To find out if Hospice is right for you, check out Care.com's article on the pros and cons of hospice care. Our site can connect you to local hospice centers, senior caregivers, support groups and services, and organizations dedicated to end-of-life care.
