Hospice is a philosophy or type of care that provides comprehensive, loving support for people with illnesses that have progressed behind a doctor’s expectation for a cure. Hospice care provides pain management and symptom management techniques to enable individuals to be free from discomfort as much as possible. Hospice care helps people to live with dignity, in comfort and peace, surrounded by their loved ones as they approach the end of their lives.
Diagnoses that are commonly associated with hospice care include cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, stroke or coma, AIDS/HIV, liver disease, kidney disease, lung disease, ALS, neurological disease.
The mission of Affective Hospice Care is to enable dying persons and those close to them to gain comfort and control over their lives, while neither hastening nor postponing death. We aim to provide a compassionate and dedicated team of health care professionals that will care for you as they would care for their own family.
