Hospice care is an important service for individuals with a life-limiting illness who are in need of pain and symptom management. Focusing on improving a person’s comfort and quality of life, educating family members on care techniques, and providing respite care services, hospice is a team of multi-disciplinary experts working together to meet the wishes of each client and his or her family.
