Hospice care is a specialized care designed to provide support to you and your loved ones during the final phase of a terminal illness. Hospice care focuses on your comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The goal of hospice care is to enable you to have an alert, pain-free life … to live each day as fully as possible.
