Hospice means satisfaction

The meaning behind hospice is that it is in place to personalize its services to each individual and provide a caring community so that those suffering from illness or injury – and their family members – are able to attain the necessary preparation for death that is satisfactory to everyone.
Every person wants to die in a specific way. They each have their own physical, spiritual, emotional and social needs that they want met. Their families feel the same. Hospice personnel are sensitive and responsive to the special requirements that each individual and family member wants met.
Hospice workers provide care to patients that have a limited life expectancy. Although hospice deals a lot with cancer patients of all ages, when considering the elderly, they may or may not have cancer, but more than not will have some form of Dementia and that will have some consideration on their care proceedings.
For many elderly individuals, their wish is to die at home. Hospice can provide them the means to do so.
Hospice can provide not only the care, but the equipment required to keep a person in their home setting as long as possible (right up until the end) – as long as that is their wishes. If you are a caregiver that works hand-in-hand with hospice, you are definitely showing the elderly that With Age Comes Respect!
