Why Choose Hospice?

It’s not uncommon for family members and patients to ask why hospice care is necessary. Sometimes, families feel that the recommendation for hospice is suggestive of the family’s care. However, hospice is meant to give a patient the best level of care possible without increasing the strain on the family as a unit.

Hospice care helps many families stay together as long as possible during the end-of-life process. Call 865-3740-600 to speak with a member of our team about the advantages of hospice care.

4 reasons to consider hospice:

  1. Hospice treats the person, not the disease. It focuses on the family, not just the individual. Hospice emphasizes the quality, not the duration, of life.
  2. Hospice care allows terminally ill patients and their families to remain together in the comfort of their homes, promoting peace and dignity.
  3. Hospice uses an interdisciplinary approach, combining the knowledge and skills of a team of professionals across different medical departments.
  4. Hospice care has proven to be a cost-effective alternative to hospitals and nursing homes, as the majority of hospice services are delivered in the home.
