North Dakota - Hospice

When a family is struggling with a life-limiting diagnosis of a loved one, they rarely have the time or energy for the necessary task of researching care options. If you can do some advance planning in end-of-life care, the effort you spend now will allow you much needed extra time to spend with your loved one when you really want to.

Hospice Care

The most common end-of-life care strategy is hospice care. Hospice focuses on keeping individuals comfortable and pain free, rather than on medical treatment. Hospice care can be administered wherever the senior is most comfortable - a private home, a nursing home, or a hospice facility. Essentially, hospice works to avoid prolonging the dying process while keeping a senior as peaceful as possible.
