About Hospice Care

Global Home Hospice Services / About Hospice Care
What is Hospice and who is eligible?

Hospice is a philosophy of caring that focuses on what a patient needs and wishes for to manage their pain and support system in their last moments of life. It is a tailored and team oriented system to restoring dignity and providing a sense of personal fulfillment to those facing a life-limiting illness or injury.

The focus is on you and your family rather than the illness; the goal is to improve the quality of life in those remaining precious moments.

Today, people who need hospice are not sent to some unfamiliar place, building, or secluded medical facility (a frequent misconception). Instead, it’s a concept – a collection of ideas and attitudes – about an array of services based on a holistic philosophy of living and dying.

Hospice searches for meaningful treatment of terminally ill patients and their families by uniting contemporary science with sensitive caring. In short, the goal of all hospice care is the relief of symptoms in order to promote comfort and improve a patient’s quality of life.
