After a diagnosis of life-limiting illness, patients and their families should consider all of their choices for care. A patient does not have to be bed-bound or critically ill to be admitted to hospice. A staff member of Community Home Health will be happy to talk with you about our hospice program and the types of services provided.
Hospice becomes appropriate when treatments are no longer effective in curing the disease. Hospice aims to provide relief from physical and emotional pain so that the patient and family can spend the rest of their time in comfort and dignity. Hospice affirms life and assists the patient and family with life closure activities.
