South Dakota - Hospice

The aging process is often a highly stressful time, especially when end-of-life care plans must be made. But being prepared will bring benefits for your family. A family who understands what options they have for end-of-life care early on will have more time to spend with their elderly loved one during their final days.

Hospice

Hospice is an end-of-life care option given to those with less than six months left to live. Such care places a focus on the comfort of a patient rather than intensive medical treatment. Staff members work around the clock to ensure minimal pain and to provide a safe, positive atmosphere. Hospice often provides counseling services before and after a senior's death as well.
