Benefits of Hospice
Many people only consider hospice care in the final days of life. But hospice is ideally suited to care for patients and family caregivers for the last six months of life or more.

Hospice is a type of care that's designed to comfort and heal patients and their families during the last months or years of their lives. Hospice patients typically receive care in a home or hospice facility, and they may also receive treatment for disease or injury.

There are many benefits of hospice care, including:

- It allows patients and their families to focus on living rather than on the illness or death process.

- It provides relief from the burden of medical bills, as hospice care is typically covered by insurance.

- It can help patients emotionally adjust to their illness or death, as they no longer feel alone in this difficult time. 

- It makes it possible for family caregivers to continue caring for loved ones even after the primary caregiver has left the home. 

- Hospice can provide pain relief and physical comfort to patients and their families.
