It’s true that hospice is specialized care that is most often administered at the end of one’s life, but hospice care can also be a beautiful, empowering, life-affirming option. Its aim is to bring peace, comfort, and well-being, not only to those facing a terminal condition, but also their friends and family.
Hospice care can and does empower life. Anyone, of any age, is eligible for hospice care if they have a life expectancy of six months or less. This can include not only health care and the administration of key medications but also a wide range of helpful therapies that ease the patient and those who are closest to them.
