Read about hospice resources you can access in South Carolina.

South Carolina - Hospice

Few families even think of end-of-life care plans until the need for one is imminent. But if you can do some advance planning, the process will actually be easier on your family.


Families often turn to Hospice when a loved one receives a terminal diagnosis with less than six months life expectancy. Hospice provides palliative care, nursing care, personal care services, access to 24-hour medical staff, clergy or other religious officials available for support, and grief and bereavement counseling. The focus is not on medical treatments, but on end-of-life comfort and can take place in an individual's home, an assisted living community or a nursing home. To find out if Hospice is right for your loved one, read 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.
