Does Hospice Mean "Giving Up"?
Does hospice care mean I am giving up on my loved one?
Hospice does not mean that you or your medical professionals are giving up. Hospice is a change of focus to a different set of goals - comfort and quality of life. Comfort care includes physical therapy, spiritual and emotional support, companionship and even the granting of life-long wishes. Hospice gives the patient and their family the opportunity to enjoy life and celebrate the bonds and memories they share.
