Comfort Care / Hospice

Care that focuses on pain relief, symptoms and stress relief of a serious illness

The goal of comfort care is to help people with serious illnesses feel better. It prevents or treats symptoms and side effects of disease and treatment. Comfort Care also treats emotional, social, practical, and spiritual problems that illnesses can bring up. When the person feels better in these areas, they have an improved quality of life.

When curative treatments are no longer working, physicians will often suggest Hospice care, saying that they will now focus on keeping the patient comfortable., offering comfort in the form ofsymptom management, managing pain, breathing issues, digestive issues, and other common end-of-life concerns. In addition, we provide emotional and spiritual comfort for the patient and their family.
