Hospice serves patients and their families and provides specialized care for the terminally ill.
Hospice care is appropriate for individuals with a prognosis of six months or less. Several studies have shown that people with a terminal illness who choose Hospice care benefits often live longer and with a better quality of life than those who do not take advantage of hospice.
If you know someone who makes frequent visits to the emergency room, has been hospitalized several times in the past year with their symptoms affecting their quality of life, consider calling Hospice for a consultation. If the family caregivers could use some help, the individual is more dependent on others to meet daily needs and they are at a point in their disease process where quality of life and comfort are the priority, please reach out to Hospice at (716) 439-4417
