Hospice

Hospice

Memorial Hospital has a working relationship with all area hospice providers. Hospice is a type of care and a philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a terminally ill or seriously ill patient's symptoms. These symptoms can be physical, emotional, spiritual or psychosocial in nature. Hospice care focuses on bringing comfort, self-respect, and tranquility to people in the final year of life. Patients’ symptoms and pain are controlled, goals of care are discussed and emotional needs are supported. Hospice believes that the end of life is not a medical experience, it is a human experience that benefits from expert medical and holistic support that hospice offers.
