Hospice is important because it provides many benefits that aren't possible in a traditional healthcare setting. Comfort Plus Hospice helps the patient and family come together through their care. The patient and family are directly involved in making decisions and in helping the person they love. Hospice serves the family as a unit and is sensitive to any special needs.
Hospice allows greater control for patients. It enables terminally ill people with 6 months or less to live to make decisions about how and where they want to spend the rest of their lives. It can also help them make choices about advance directives.
