Physical Hospice Support Provided:

  • Managing Pain and Uncomfortable Symptoms
  • Monitoring Vitals and Overall Health

Hospice’s physical support is personalized and uses the right combination of medical and non-medical methods to keep pain under control and minimize uncomfortable secondary symptoms often associated with life limiting diagnoses. As with all hospice services, the intent is not to find a cure, but rather to enhance quality of life and help patients maintain their independence longer.

You are never obligated to remain with hospice if you choose not to for any reason. While our approach is not curative, the option to stop services and resume treatment options remains available to you. The decision is always completely yours, and we encourage you to discuss it with your physician, family members and even our hospice team at any point.

Yes, your hospice care team will work with you to help you maintain your highest level of independence for as long as possible. While we will remain available to provide support and supervision as necessary, our team will listen to your cues and provide you with guidelines and modifications to keep personal care tasks safe and comfortable. As your needs change, your care plan will adapt to meet them.

Pain and symptom relief is provided by using the latest technology and medical advances. Medications are sometimes used to offer relief from pain, but they are closely monitored by your personal physician and our medical director. We also use massage, cool cloths, warm baths and physical and occupational therapy techniques to help keep you comfortable.
