How do I make a hospice referral?
Hospice provides compassion, care and comfort for patients with a life-limiting illness.
Hospice aims to enhance the quality of life by controlling pain and physical symptoms, maintaining dignity, respecting patient wishes and providing emotional and spiritual support.
Hospice is a family-centered approach that includes a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors and trained volunteers.
