Hospice care provides human and compassionate care inclusive of medical,
psychological and spiritual support for people in the last phases of
incurable diseases. So that they may live as comfortable as possible. This
care not only assists terminally ill patients to die peacefully but also to
make them live peacefully until the patients die.
Hospice care focuses on bringing comfort, self respect, and tranquility to
the dying patient. Patient’s symptoms and pain are controlled to help reach
these goals. However the focus is providing care not curing because Hospice
care is used when one can no longer be helped by curative treatment.
