Anyone diagnosed with limited life expectancy can receive hospice care.

Once a doctor confirms an illness is terminal (life expectancy of six months or less), they will collaborate with the America Hospice and Palliative Care team to provide services tailored to the patient’s needs and desires.

While many patients have cancer, we also care for individuals with various life-limiting conditions, such as heart and lung disease, kidney disease, neurological disorders, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and other dementias. Family and friends benefit from hospice care as well, receiving support to help the patient and adjust to life changes.

A common misconception is that all hospice patients are bedridden, critically ill, and incapable of living life to its fullest. Hospice celebrates life, assisting you in fulfilling your unique needs during this life chapter.

After receiving a diagnosis for limited life expectancy, patients must make an important choice about goals for their treatment.

When a doctor concludes that no curative treatment exists for a specific illness, the therapy is no longer effective, or you decide the treatment side effects are too severe, you might consider opting for comfort care as your ultimate objective.

Aggressive medical treatment prioritizes curing the physical ailment over addressing the patient’s emotional and spiritual needs, often requiring intensive clinical care that can reduce life quality. Hospice care, on the other hand, focuses on comfort by alleviating pain and other symptoms while continuing to cater to the emotional and spiritual needs of both the patient and their family.

Hospice care neither extends life nor accelerates death; instead, it eases pain and physical discomfort, allowing the patient to enjoy a more peaceful and fulfilling life quality. At America Hospice and Palliative Care, care and support services primarily occur in the patient’s home or residence. Many families have expressed that they waited too long to fully benefit from hospice care’s offerings.
