Hospice Care

At the end of life, when treatment options are not available, a person may choose to spend the rest of his or her life in an environment devoted to providing care designed to maximize comfort and minimize the amount of suffering that the individual might undergo.

Hospice, in the early days, was an idea that was tied to the idea of offering a place of shelter and rest, or “hospitality” to weary and sick travelers who were on a long journey. In 1967, the term was first applied to special care for dying patients by Dame Cicely Saunders at St. Christopher’s Hospice in London.

Hospice care is responsible for providing humane and compassionate care for people who have reached the last phases of an incurable disease. This is designed to allow them to live as fully and comfortably as possible.

It is the goal of hospice care neither to hasten nor to postpone death. It treats the person instead of the diseases and focuses on the quality of the person’s life rather than its overall length. Care is family-centered and includes both the patient and the family when it comes time for making decisions. The care provided is given 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The care given can be provided in nearly any setting. It can be given in a patient’s home, hospital, nursing home, or even a private hospice facility. In the United States, a family member or family members serve as the main hands-on caregivers.

Hospice care is best for people who are no longer benefitting from cancer treatment or other treatments and are expected to live six months or less.
