What Is Hospice Care? [VIDEO]

I’ve learned that hospice is not a place but more so a philosophy of care. Hospice is dedicated to providing quality and in-depth care to anyone with a life threatening illness, and hospice is not just for the patient, it includes the family members as well. Hospice care is a choice one makes for yourself or a person dealing with a life-limiting illness, emphasizing on the comfort of the patient at all times, while providing a support network of hospice professionals for the family.

Hospice allows the family and the patients to choose between remaining in their own home, at a nursing facility or for us here in Abilene, Hendrick Hospice has an incredible hospice wing on the 7th floor at Hendrick Medical Center. And did I mention that the hospice team of professionals are available 24/7 as needed. One interesting fact about hospice care, it’s in higher demand during the Holidays.

This video is an interview of the National President for Hospice Care and he explains more in-depth what hospice care really is.
