Hospiceis a special healthcare option for patients and families who are faced with a terminal illness. Hospice provides palliative (comfort) care when curative treatment is no longer the patient's choice. Care takes place in the patient's home or a home like setting such as a nursing home or board and care. Hospice views the patient, disease process and the family from a holistic perspective addressing the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient and family. Hospice provides non-judgemental respect for patient choices. Hospice care is for patient and family as a unit. Hospice provides holistic care-spiritual, emotional, and physical. The Medicare hospice benefit, Medicaid and private insurance cover hospice services associated with the terminal illness.
