What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a type of care that supports those with life-limiting illnesses — it’s not curative, but rather focuses on the comfort and quality of life in the end stages. Hospice care is not a place, it’s a model of care that can be provided at home, a private hospice facility, or in a hospital.

At Bonita Springs, we provide hospice care both at home and in our private faculty, Hospice Care Home in Hollister. Hospice is a part of our palliative care umbrella that provides a team of healthcare professionals for physical, emotional, and spiritual support.

Hospice is for anyone with a life-limiting diagnosis, regardless of the stage of illness or age, and can be a transitional type of care where patients go in and out of hospice as they meet the criteria.

Benefits Of Hospice

Hospice care can be extremely valuable to those with a life-limiting illness — not only does it take into account the type of care you want and offer pain and symptom management, but it also supports your loved ones.

Emotional Support

Hospice care stretches far beyond physical care and provides some of the best emotional support for you and your loved ones. Coping with the reality that this is the end stage of life stirs up many emotions for everyone.

Hospice care provides grief and bereavement counseling from compassionate professionals. Navigate this tender time with your loved ones and get the extra support and benefit of counseling services offered at Bonita Springs Healthcare Services.
