Hospice care is about being alive. Palliative care neither rushes nor delays death, but rather it affirms life, highlights self-respect, and enhances the quality of the remainder of a person's life.|
Details: At Springfield Seasons Hospice, we emphasize on adding life to days at a time when days can no longer be added to life.
Hospice care treats the person, not the disease, emphases on family and friends, not just the individual, and highlights the quality of life, not the duration.
Hospice is a program of palliative care and supportive services that provide physical, psychological, social and spiritual care for terminally ill persons and their families. It is a wide-ranging, medically directed, team-oriented program that stresses pain control and symptom management for patients who no longer respond to routine aggressive medical care. The focus of hospice care is comforting rather than curative in nature.
