What Is Hospice?

Hospice is about making the most of every moment. It is not a physical place or type of treatment. As a patient-centered concept of care available to those with a life-limiting illness, hospice is a multidisciplinary approach to pain and symptom management.

Principles Of Hospice

  • Prevent and alleviate pain and other symptoms
  • Integrate the psychological and spiritual aspects of client care
  • Provide support systems that help clients live as actively as possible until death, and help their families cope with the illness and ensuing bereavement
  • Neither hasten death nor delay the dying process

Island Hospice helps clients and their families cope with life’s final journey. We provide clinical care, comfort and support, allowing families to focus on being together.
