What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a specialized type of medical care for those facing a life-limiting illness, coupled with just the right kind of support for family and caregivers. The purpose of hospice is to make the time as comfortable as possible so patients and their loved ones can focus on what matters most to them.

  • Hospice addresses physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
  • Hospice is a type of care, not a place. Hospice care may be provided in the patient’s own home, an assisted living facility, group home, nursing home—virtually anyplace the patient calls home.
  • Hospice care is focused on quality of life, and concentrates on managing pain and other symptoms so patients and their loved ones can make the most of their time.
Hospice is a team approach to caring for patients and their families. This unique care model works very well. In fact, it is not at all uncommon for a patient’s condition to improve while on hospice care. When a patient’s pain and symptoms are well managed, a patient’s physical, emotional and spiritual well being can be similarly enhanced.

Serenity Hospice Care provides this care and support wherever the patient feels most comfortable. With the patient’s and family’s direct input, Serenity will develop a plan of care, personally tailored to make sure that the needs of both the patient and loved ones are met.

The word "hospice" was once used to describe a place of refuge for people on a difficult journey. Our excellent care and deep compassion for patients and families offer a place of comfort on the end-of-life journey. Recognizing that in hospice care, the main guardians are the family caregiver and the hospice team, care is most often provided in the home setting rather than in hospitals and hospice care facilities. The Serenity Hospice Care team will support the patient and family wherever they are.
