what is hospice

The hospice philosophy seeks to enable patients to experience a 
pain free life while managing symptoms, so their final days may 
be spent with dignity, surrounded by loved ones. Choice Hospice 
believes in providing patient care that affirms life and neither 
hastens nor postpones death. Care is extended to the family with 
guidance, counseling and support through the process of loss and 
important decision making. 

Hospice care focuses on all aspects of life and well being: physical, emotional, an spiritual. Together with our caregivers we emphasize our patient’ psychological and emotional welfare while we care for their physical needs. 

Our compassionate staff understands a patients’ needs, and we respect each individual’s differences and preferences. Our patients and their loved ones can participate in their care if desired, and attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparedness for death.

things you might like to know... about hospice

“When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.”

Frederick Buechner
