Washington D.C. - Hospice Care

Hospice Care

Patients are offered Hospice care when they have limited life expectancy-rather than have more days in their life, hospice patients opt for quality: staying at home and surrounding themselves with friends and family. Hospice allows the patient to have quality final days of life whether that is in their own home, a nursing home, or a hospice facility. Hospice care focuses more on an individual's comfort and not on medical treatments. Learn more about Hospice, including the cost, benefits and questions to ask when choosing a program.
