What is Hospice?
Hospice is a health-care facility that is designed to provide pain control and emotional support for terminally ill patients and their families. Hospice care focuses on bringing comfort, self-respect, and tranquility to people in the final year of life, and typically refrains from taking extraordinary measures to prolong life.
