Hospice care focuses on providing a high quality of life during a life-limiting illness. The patient opting for hospice care understands that his illness is not responding to medical treatment. Thus, in hospice care attempts to treat the patient’s illness are stopped and the care focuses on providing comfort care as well as supportive care.
Hospice care is offered by a team of people having special skills. Among them are doctors, nurses, trained volunteers, spiritual advisors, and social workers. Everyone works together to provide the emotional, medical, and spiritual support required by the patient and his family.
