What is Hospice?
Reliance Hospice and Palliative Care
The Leading Provider for Hospice services.
WHAT IS HOSPICE?
Hospice is a patient and family centered approach to end of life care. Hospice respects the needs of the patient and their family as they face a serious illness where curative treatments are no longer successful. Services can be provided in the comfort of one's home, assisted living facility, inpatient facility, skilled nursing facility or wherever the patient resides. When a cure is no longer possible, the focus of care shifts from managing the disease process to improving the quality of life. Hospice care treats the person, not the disease. Under the direction of a physician, and in collaboration with a team of healthcare professionals, a plan of care is developed to meet your specific needs and goals of care.
WHY HOSPICE IS THE RIGHT CHOICE?
At Reliance Hospice, we believe in helping you live a full life. Our experienced and dedicated team will work with you to develop an individualized plan of care that focuses on symptom management and keeping you comfortable so you can enjoy each day.
