Overview of Hospice Care How to Find Hospice Care

Overview: What is Hospice Care?

Hospice is a care program for people who have a very limited life expectancy, and who are no longer pursuing treatments to improve or cure their illness.

Hospice care: Comforting the terminally ill. Hospice care services are provided by a team of health care professionals who maximize comfort for a terminally ill person by reducing pain and addressing physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. The goal of hospice care is to provide the highest quality of life possible for whatever time remains. Mayo Clinic.

Hospice teams may be overlooking teenaged family members. Teens with dying parents don't benefit as much from hospice services as older members of the family do, a new study suggests. Reuters Health, 08/19/2016.

How to Find Hospice Care

To find a hospice, go to Google Maps. Enter your city, state, and then "hospice". Such as, "Edina, Minnesota, hospice". It will show you a map and a list of all your nearby hospice programs.

You can also ask your doctor, religious leader, social worker, or other healthcare professionals for help locating or recommending hospice programs.
