Embracing End-of-Life Journey: The Essential Role of Hospice Care
What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is a comprehensive approach to end-of-life care, focusing on enhancing the quality of life for individuals facing a life-limiting illness. It incorporates medical, emotional, and spiritual support for the patient and their loved ones. The core philosophy of hospice care lies in acknowledging death as a natural part of life and helping patients live their remaining days as comfortably and fully as possible.
