What is Hospice?
Service At Its Finest
Hospice care is a benefit that provides palliative and compassionate care for individuals in addition to emotional support for their families. Our services can be provided in the comfort and familiarity of one's home, as assisted living or a skilled nursing facility or wherever the patient resides. Above and Beyond Hospice Care treatment begins with the belief that life is sacred. We treat the person, not the disease. Ours is a team-oriented approach that addresses all aspects of comfort care, including: excellent medical care, pain management and emotional/spiritual support, expressly designed to meet the needs and wishes of the patient and their family.
Palliative care alleviates/reduces the discomfort of an illness when curative treatments have been unsuccessful. Above and Beyond Hospice Care specializes in providing patients and their families with the help and support necessary during hospice diagnosis. We emphasize the quality of life, rather than the remaining length of life and we neither hasten nor postpone death: we affirm life and regard dying as a natural process. The focus of hospice care is on a holistic approach in treating the needs of the patients and their families.
