Understanding Hospice Care: An Overview

All Care Health Solutions Explaining Hospice Care

What is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is provided to people with a life-limiting illness who have a limited life expectancy, usually six months or less. It is offered to those who prefer palliative care over life-sustaining treatments. Hospice is a form of comprehensive care, given by an interdisciplinary team made up of doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, chaplains, and volunteers. Rather than attempting to cure the patient’s illness, hospice care focuses on providing comfort and support.

Who qualifies for Hospice Care?

Hospice care is best suited for individuals who have a terminal illness or disease. However, many people still qualify for hospice care long before they meet the criteria of a terminal diagnosis. At All Care Health Solutions, we work with those who are frail, elderly, or disabled, as well as those who have a diagnosis of any life-limiting illness but are not yet considered terminal. If an individual has a condition that has been diagnosed and deemed not curable, they may benefit from hospice care.

The hospice care team at All Care Health Solutions provides a variety of services for those who qualify, including medical care, symptom management, emotional and spiritual care, family care, and bereavement services.

This type of care often results in improved quality of life for the patient and their family, both physically and emotionally. Our hospice team also works with the family to provide bereavement services, which can help during the grieving process.
