North Carolina - Hospice

With the aging process comes many difficult, but essential, conversations. One of these is about your loved one's wishes for end-of-life care.

Hospice Care

Hospiceis one of the most common options for end-of-life. The main focus of a hospice care facility is not medical treatment, but palliative care. Hospice can be given in an individual's home, a nursing home, or a hospice facility. Most hospices even offer counseling services in order to help seniors and their family come to terms with an imminent death, but also to help families grieve after the death.
